The Kills are getting in the Halloween, calling on the ghosts of the past by sharing Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You.”
Recorded in 2009, Alison Mosshart brings in dark soulful vocals over Jamie Hince’s fuzzy guitar. The track comes with a self-produced visual that’s comprised of live footage from shows in Portland, Pomona, and San Francisco.
This is the latest release off their upcoming Little Bastards, which will release in December.
The double LP will include the never-before-heard demo of “Raise Me” from the band’s Midnight Boom period; “I Call It Art” from the Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited covers compilation; a performance of “Love Is A Deserter” from an XFM radio session and other covers like Howlin’ Wolf’s “Forty Four” and Dock Boggs’ “Sugar Baby.”
