Brandon Flowers covers Frank Sinatra’s ‘Come Fly With Me’

The star joined Tony Bennett and Ne-Yo for the Tribeca Film Festival’s tribute to Sinatra.

Last night (22nd April), New York’s Tribeca Film Festival hosted a very special tribute to Frank Sinatra, so obviously Brandon Flowers got himself all suited and booted for the occasion.

Performing live at the event, Flowers joined forces with the likes of Tony Bennet, Ne-Yo and Lea DeLaria - you know, who plays Boo on Orange Is The New Black - for the musical tribute. He contributed his vocal talents to performances of Sinatra’s ‘Come Fly With Me’, along with ‘New York, New York’, which also featured Ne-Yo, DeLaria and Alice Smith.

His appearance came ahead of the release of his new solo album ‘The Desired Effect’, which gets released on 18th May through Virgin EMI. He’ll also be heading to the UK next month - check those dates out at the bottom of the story.

Watch fan-filmed footage of his rendition of ‘Come Fly With Me’ here, and his more collaborative performance below.
