FIRST AID KIT RELEASES ACOUSTIC VERSION OF “FIREWORKS” AND COVER OF KATE BUSH’S “RUNNING UP THAT HILL” FOR SPOTIFY SINGLES

Today, First Aid Kit has released two new tracks for the latest installment of Spotify Singles. Recorded at Spotify Studios in their hometown of Stockholm, the Söderberg sisters performed a live acoustic version of “Fireworks,” a standout single from their latest album Ruins, as well as a cover of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.” Listen to both songs HERE.

First Aid Kit says: “We wanted to release a more stripped down version of ‘Fireworks’ that showcases its melody and lyrics. This version reminds us of the original demo we made for the song in our home studio in Stockholm. As for our cover of ‘Running Up That Hill,’ we started listening to Kate Bush pretty recently and thought the song’s fantastic melody would suit our voices and signature folk rock sound.”

The duo will embark on The Rebel Heart Tour this September in support of their critically acclaimed album Ruins. The 18 city trek will bring First Aid Kit to Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles, and more, including a prominent set at Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas. Julia Jacklin and M. Ward will support First Aid Kit on select dates throughout the tour. Tickets are on sale now, visit www.firstaidkitband.com for more information.
