"Nite Flights" was first covered by the English musician David Bowie in 1993 for his album Black Tie White Noise. Along with all the other songs on Black Tie White Noise, this version uses heavy electronic sounds, including electronic drums and multiple synthesizers. A remixed version called "Moodswings Back to Basics Remix" was released on the bonus disc following the 10th anniversary edition of the album.
Bowie remarked that he was introduced to Scott Walker when he dated one of Walker's ex-girlfriends. Reportedly, she enjoyed Walker's music more than Bowie's, and played Walker's albums constantly.
"Nite Flights" was recorded by the art rockgroupThe Fatima Mansions in 1994 for their album Lost in the Former West. It was also released as a single on UK Radioactive/Kitchenware the same year. The single also included a remix of the song by The Blood Of The Lamb titled "It's So Cold.... I Think".
