A Beloved Tune Gets Revamped


When our favorite duo, The Kills, are a little bit quiet, the result is usually a great new tune.

In this case, check out the new, “non-electric” version of their classic song, “Wait” in a video of their in-studio recording session.  The tune is from Echo Home – Non-Electric EP — out digitally today, with a limited edition 10-inch  vinyl release available now.

Alison’s Killer Voice

The original version of “Wait” is off the The Kills first EP Black Rooster, released 15 years go. Alison’s voice really is prominent in the new acoustic version on Echo Home – Non-Electric EP.  The new EP also features “That Love” off  Ash & Ice‘s and a cover of the Rihanna song, “Desperado.”
