Last year The Kills released their fourth studio album Blood Pressures, which features the recently released single “The Last Goodbye.” As a B-side to the single, the band has covered the iconic Velvet Underground hit “Pale Blue Eyes,” from the 1969 self-titled album The Velvet Underground.

The Kills version remains faithful, but replaces the simple tambourine beat with a bluesy guitar sound. The song sounds rougher around the edges as compared to the original, but it works well for The Kills. Download it below.
