The Kills Cover Rihanna

I never would have expected Tame Impala to be on Rihanna's radar, yet she covered "New Person, Same Mistakes" on her latest album, Anti. Similarly, I did not think The Kills would be paying much attention to Rihanna.

The duo covered one of her new tracks, "Desperado," on a SiriusXMU live session. Unlike Rihanna's almost-too-true-to-the-original Tame Impala cover, The Kills fully make the Rihanna track their own, turning it into a moody, blues rock tune.

Both artists had new music out earlier this year: Rihanna released Anti in January and The Kills put out Ash & Ice earlier this month.
