Plus, the Las Vegas rockers debut a new song, "The Calling", with an introduction from Woody Harrelson

The Killers are the latest band to stop by BBC Radio 1 for its month-long Live Lounge marathon. During their set, the Las Vegas rockers paid tribute to one of their major influences by covering David Bowie’s “Fame”.

Fittingly, Brandon Flowers & co. transitioned into the cover directly from “The Man”, the Bowie-inspired lead single from their upcoming album, Wonderful Wonderful. Check out clips from the performance below.
