Watch Brandon Flowers Cover The Pretenders With Chrissie Hynde In London
Killers frontman Brandon Flowers rode ’80s new wave sounds to stardom, and he’s always been quick to pay tribute to those who came before him. Last night, Flowers played a show in London to support his really, really great new solo album The Desired Effect. (Seriously, that shit rules, don’t believe what you might read elsewhere.) And during the encore, he brought out longtime Pretenders leader and hall-of-fame badass Chrissie Hynde to sing a couple of songs with him: The Pretenders’ 1986 single “Don’t Get Me Wrong” and his own “Between Me And You.” These two seemed absolutely delighted to be onstage together, and the weird improvised dance they did during “Don’t Get Me Wrong” was too much. Watch both performances below.
The Desired Effect is out now on Island.
