London-based duo the Kills are readying their fourth album, Blood Pressures, for release on April 5, and now they’ve leaked the album’s first cut, “Satellite.” Hear it here:
Guitarist-singer Jamie Hince recently revealed to SPIN that “Satellite” was inspired by a phone conversation between himself and his fianceé, supermodel Kate Moss: “I was on tour and the signal kept going. I kept losing her. It turned into a daydream about the universe and vibrations, and how a voice can go from one side of the planet to the other via satellite — and it’s all vibrations. It sounds dreadfully hippie-ish [laughs]. But it was a daydream — a nightmare, really — about actually losing someone physically.”
