♫♪  Xiu Xiu / Dirty Beaches - “Always” / “Tu Ne Dis Rien”

As we reported late last month, Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches are releasing a split 7-inch single on April 21 for Record Store Day (fetish alert!). Xiu Xiu’s side features a cover of Erasure’s “Always” (also the title of Xiu Xiu’s latest), while Dirty Beaches covers “Tu Ne Dis Rien” by Françoise Hardy. Check out both tracks below via Polyvinyl. (And hey, while I have you, can I just parenthetically reiterate just how awesome Dirty Beaches’ Badlands is??)

Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches will be going on a joint tour soon. Check out the dates here.
