Killers To Release Covers Album

THE KILLERS are planning to record an album of cover tracks while the band tours this summer (09).
The rockers have revealed they want to work on songs by artists from Neil Diamond to Iggy Pop, Genesis and Cyndi Lauper.
The band regularly cover Lauper's hit Girls Just Want To Have Fun and Joy Division's 1979 song Shadowplay while performing live on stage.
And frontman Brandon Flowers believes it's time for the group to put all its favourite songs on one record.
Frontman Brandon Flowers tells NME magazine, "It's still in the dream stages. It's something that we've always talked about doing and we're still talking about it. It's difficult for each of us to pick songs that represent us as individuals. I mean, I have a lot of personalities myself! I've gone through everything from Neil Diamond to The Cars."
And Flowers is keen to start recording the tracks while the band tour Europe this summer (09): "We're probably going to cut most of it out on the road.
"I brought out my mobile recording rig, so we just set up backstage with some extra gear - a drum set, a couple of practice amps and we mic everything up. It sounds excellent!"
