Flowers has recently covered a number of other hits while on the road in support of his new solo record ‘The Desired Effect’, which was released in May. In the past few months he has played New Order’s ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ and Joe Pug’s ‘If Still It Can’t Be Found’.

Speaking to NME, Flowers recently revealed ‘The Desired Effect’ may be his last solo record. “Being onstage without [The Killers] is different, but I try to look for the similarities rather than dwell on the differences because I need that comfort, I guess,” he said.

Meanwhile, The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ was recently covered live by Foo Fighters, with Dave Grohl’s orthopedic surgeon providing vocals.
