Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches are teaming up for a national tour right now, but their partnership is going beyond sharing stages: They’re sharing the same 7-inch single too. On Record Store Day, Polyvinyl issues a joint single that has Xiu Xiu covering Erasure’s “Always” and Dirty Beaches covering Francoise Hardy’s “Tu Ne Dis Rien.” Both of them are only available on Polyvinyl’s Soundcloud. Listening to Xiu Xiu deconstruct an icy Erasure track is the highlight. Hear Dirty Beaches cover over here.
Record Store Day is on April 21.
