The Kills will release their new single ’LOVE IS A DESERTER’ on May 30.

The band will put out the song on CD and two 7” vinyl singles.

Guitarist Hotel said of the track: “People talk about love being the most important thing in the world but it’s kind of overrated. The more you love something, the more you hold it in front of you, the nihilistic you become. But passion is something that drives you, it’s always there.”

The CD edition of the single will feature new track ’Passion Is Accurate’, the video to ’Love Is A Deserter’ and two remixes of the lead song.

Producer Paul Epworth provides the Phones remix while the Caveman Remix comes courtesy of Pulp’s Steve Mackey and Fat Truckers’ Ross Orton.

The two 7” vinyls will both include new songs ’Magazine’ and ’Hit Me When U-1-2’.
