Xiu Xiu "Into the Night" (Julee Cruise cover)
Published Apr 07, 2016Gearing up to release their collection of Twin Peaks score interpretations in time for this year's Record Store Day, prolific experimentalists Xiu Xiu have shared their cover of Julee Cruise's "Into the Night" ahead of the record's release.
Originally performed by Cruise on the sixth episode of the show's first season, the band's new version is grittier yet no less powerful than its source, featuring powerful vocals and dark ambiance created through reverberating drums and delicate bells.
Xiu Xiu Plays the Music of Twin Peaks arrives on April 16 through Polyvinyl, available as a coloured double-LP set as part of Record Store Day 2016. Take a listen to their reinterpreted version of "Into the Night" below.
