Karin Dreijer’s take on Nick Cave, Anita Lane, and, really, Blixa Bargeld’s “Stranger Than Kindness” has graduated from that limited-edition tour 7″ to a spot on the second disc of the new Fever Ray Deluxe Edition. You’ll find her Vashti Bunyan cover on it too, along with all the album’s awesome videos. Speaking of which, “Stranger Than Kindness” has its own Andreas Nilsson-directed clip. Like the others, it’s draped in shadows and an eerie beauty that’s part deep woods/part fashion runway (i.e. it’s not surprising it debuted via Vanity Fair).
