Duncan Sheik covers the 80s

Duncan Sheik is not exactly an artist that I would expect to release a covers record, and it's even more of a surprise that the subject of this release is the 80s. However, it seems that on June 7, Sheik will be taking on the songs of Depeche Mode, New Order, and The Cure for an album called Covers 80s. The full track list and tour dates for the singer-songwriter are posted after the jump.

Covers 80s track list:
"Stripped" - originally performed by Depeche Mode
"Hold Me Now" - originally performed by Thompson Twins
"Love Vigilante" - originally performed by New Order
"Kyoto" - originally performed by The Cure
"What Is Love" - originally performed by Howard Jones
"So Alive" - originally performed by Love & Rockets
"Shout" - originally performed by Tears for Fears
"Gentleman Take Pictures" - originally performed by Japan
"Life's What You Make It" - originally performed by Talk Talk
