Xiu Xiu covering Rihanna? Is this twisted dream of mine finally coming to fruition?  Why Yes, Yes it is. Jaime Stewart and company takes on RiRi’s hit from last year and twists it into a discordant jam with some beefed up strings and a strange Ting Tings sample.  The cover is a b-side to “Daphny”, which is about a friend of the band who was brutally raped after being nabbed on shoplifting charge.

The 7″ will be available on September 6th on Polyvinyl and is available for pre-order now.
