The Kills have shared a previously unreleased cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell On You" as the latest preview of their forthcoming rarities album Little Bastards.
Their cover of "I Put A Spell On You" was recorded in 2009, and is released today as a follow up to their demo of "Raise Me" that landed at the start of the month.
The LP's title Little Bastards is inspired by the duo's affectionate nickname that they gave to a drum machine. The Kills' Jamie Hince says, "It was a Roland 880, which isn’t strictly a drum machine – it's a sequencer, and an eight-track recorder, with its own drum machine built in, and that’s what we’d record all our beats on."
Little Bastards will feature Midnight Boom digital bonus track "Night Train" and various b-sides from the duo's 7" singles between 2002-2009.
