The Killers team up with ashes of Louis XIV for covers album – video

Brandon Flowers tells NME.COM that the album is moving along nicely

The KillersBrandon Flowers has told NME.COM that the band’s plans for a covers album are moving along, with one track already nearing completion.

Last week, the singer – along with drummer Ronnie Vanucci – explained how The Killers were gearing up to record an album of covers.

Speaking to NME.COM in a video interview at The KillersHard Rock Calling headline show (June 26), which you can watch below now, Flowers revealed that the band have already been working on a track with members of Louis XIV, whom he added had recently split up.

“We’ve started a couple of songs,” Flowers explained. “‘One Night In Bangkok’ [written by former ABBA members Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson along with Tim Rice] is the first one. We were doing it with Jason Hill from Louis XIV and Brian [Karscig].”

He added: “They’ve kind of broken up for now, I think – I don’t know what’s going on with them.”

Flowers continued by saying the track features more than one lead vocal.

Jason would take the verse and me and Brian would sing the chorus. And Mark [Stoermer, Killers bassist] put a Killers interpretation on the bassline. I think it’s pretty good.”

The Killers have also introduced a cover of Fleet Foxes‘He Doesn’t Know Why’ into their live sets recently.
