Brandon Flowers’ Solo Effort Written For The Killers

cbsbrandonflowers Brandon Flowers Solo Effort Written For The Killers

The debut solo album from [lastfm]The Killers[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Brandon Flowers[/lastfm], entitled Flamingo, comes out on September 14. But to hear Flowers himself tell it, that could have been the release date for a new [lastfm]The Killers[/lastfm] album, instead.

“I didn’t write anything for myself,” he told Elle magazine. “I’ve only ever known [lastfm]The Killers[/lastfm], so it was strange once it became apparent I was doing this alone.”

The album will featured a collaboration with LA’s own indie queen [lastfm]Jenny Lewis[/lastfm] and production from heavy hitters such as [lastfm]Daniel Lanois[/lastfm] ([lastfm]U2[/lastfm], [lastfm]Bob Dylan[/lastfm]), [lastfm]Stuart Price[/lastfm] ([lastfm]Madonna[/lastfm]) and Brendan O’Brien ([lastfm]Pearl Jam[/lastfm]).

The first video from the album is for the track “Crossfire,” and it features a stripped-down sound from what we’re used to hearing from [lastfm]The Killers[/lastfm]:

Flowers also has told NME that the solo work “will only make [lastfm]The Killers[/lastfm] stronger… I feel like I’m getting something out of my system with this album, but I want the next Killers album to be a wonderful collaboration between four guys who are ready to make the best record that they possibly can.”

Can a Flowers solo album make [lastfm]The Killers[/lastfm] a better band? And are you as intrigued as we are for a Flowers/Lewis track?
