In honor of the 15th anniversary of their first release, The Kills (Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince) have announced a new EP, Echo Home - Non-Electric EP, that consists of acoustic versions of some of their previous songs, as well as a cover of Rihanna‘s “Desperado.” The EP is being released digitally and on 10-inch vinyl on June 2 and was recorded in a stripped down session at New York’s Electric Lady Studios. They have shared video of them performing their cover of “Desperado,” which you can watch below. Also below are the EP’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The EP includes acoustic versions of two tracks from the duo’s last album, 2016’s Ash & Ice, “Echo Home” and “That Love.” There’s also an acoustic version of “Wait,” originally found on the band’s first ever release, Black Rooster EP, which was released on Dim Mak in 2002 and thus celebrates its 15 year anniversary on May 28th.
