The Killers Eye Covers Album

Posted on January 24, 2009 by

The Killers plan to put out an entire album of covers as their next release.

The band told Q magazine that each member of the four-piece will choose three tracks to cover for the album, which would be the followup to last year’s “Day & Age.”

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci already has his eye on reinventing songs by Tom Waits, Genesis and Rod Stewart.

The Killers have previously done renditions of such tunes as Joy Division’s “Shadowplay” and Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

Vannucci also revealed the band will work on the tracks while touring by using a new set of on-the-road recording equipment.

The band played Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Friday and will return to Canada for a handful of dates in April:

April 23 Victoria, BC @ Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre
April 24 Vancouver, BC @ Thunderbird Arena (University Of British Columbia)
April 26 Calgary, AB @ Pengrowth Saddledome
April 27 Edmonton, AB @ Rexall Place
