The Killers To Release Live DVD and Cover Album?


According to a report in Billboard Magazine, The Killers will be releasing their first live DVD later this year.

"We're working on some ideas for what will be our first DVD," drummer Ronnie Vannucci says. "We've been kind of hounded about it for a while, and haven't really thought we were due for it yet, but I think it's time. I think we're approaching the moment of DVD mass hysteria."

But there's more. Vannucci reveals there have been internal discussion about the release of a full-length cover album. Songs already recorded include Bright Eyes cover "Four Winds (U.K. B-side for "Spaceman"), as well as a Cyndi Lauper tune and a version of Murray Head's "One Night in Bangkok." Regarding the latter track, Vannucci says the band "messed around" and recorded it with Louis XIV.

The drummer also talks about the group's third single, which will differ country by country. "That's the weird phenomenon about this [third] album. We're realizing that other counties are picking their own singles. So in America, the next single will be 'A Dustland Fairytale,' but in the U.K., Europe and Australia, it's 'The World We Live In.' But Australia is also playing 'Losing Touch.' Spain is hip to 'I Can't Stay,' which isn't really a surprise. At first when we played it over here it was a little bit like head scratching. But who knows, it could all of a sudden turn around. 'Bones' was like that."
