Courtney & Michael Stipe duet

Listen to Rio Grande from the upcoming album Son Of Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys (via NPR).

Great tune! Courtney's voice is in fine form.

Hopefully she follows through on her word and releases 'This is War' on time. I think she would be much more reputable if she kept true to her word when it comes to musical releases. ND took what? 3 years longer than it should have. Stoked to hear the new music xx

Feb 13 right?

I really like this, brilliant and alot of depth. Only thing is Courtney is featured minorly, Stipes voice over rides. But still great

A great version of this song, I really like it although, to be honest, I always thought 'Rio' was pronounced differently i.e. rhymes with Leo. Still, doesn't really matter, still a great song !!

Hole have been played quite a few times on XfM radio, over the last couple of days. Courtney, you still get loadsa radio play, you still have major support for your work in the U.K. and I'm sure I'm not alone in saying we would love to hear more of your unique artistry in the near future.
