The Hives Vs. Cyndi Lauper

November 14, 2008

How cool is this!?

The Hives are teaming up with (or should I say against?) Cyndi Lauper for a Christmas duel! The holiday-themed single will be available as a free download from The Hives official website on November 28-30, followed by a UK store release December 1 and a US release the next day via The Orchard.

So what do the parties involved have to say about the unusual collaboration?

“It may sound weird and come as a surprise to some, but we had to. It came to us. It landed in our lap and was way too good to shake or toss. We knew we had to record it. A sign if you will,” The Hives said, while Lauper added, “This goes to show even rat sideswipers can have a good Xmas too.”

Rat sideswipers? Whatever – at least now we have a reason to look forward to the holidays despite the crummy economy!
