The Killers Frontman Brandon Flowers Commits To 2nd Solo Album

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 19, 2013

In a recent interview with NME, the always recognisable Killers frontman, Brandon Flowers, has confirmed that he will be releasing a 2nd solo album in the near future. During the conversation Flowers expressed that it wasn’t just the critical success of his solo debut that’s kept the dream alive, but more so the simple urge to express himself.

Flowers released his maiden solo effort, Flamingo, back in 2010 but it seems the recent wave of support behind The Killers and their latest album, Battle Born, saw the band’s demand once again skyrocket and as the album cycle begins to reach its end, Flowers has seen an opportunity to get back to it:

“I’m definitely gonna do another solo record at some point. Flamingo wasn’t just me dipping my toes in the water. I really loved it. It was successful, and that helps, but I love those songs and I miss singing them. It wasn’t something I had totally planned on, but I’m always writing songs, and I think — or I hope — that I’m always gonna have that. So what else am I supposed to do with myself?”

That said, it doesn’t look like there will be much down time for The Killers. The band’s drummer Ronnie Vanucci has mentioned that they are already working on new tracks, some with special guests including Anthony Gonzalez of M83. Vanucci also states that the tracks are “not just demos”:

“Real recordings. I mean, you never know what it’s gonna be, I guess. But we have our engineer, and we’re working with a couple of surprise guests, in the producer capacity. Some of it is sounding really cool. We can be guilty of making things so ornate, and sometimes that’s a bad thing. So I always have conversations with Brandon about working from a smaller palate, simplifying things. If these new tracks develop a theme, a common thread, then that could be the start of something…”

The band has most of their foreseeable future mapped out, with a performance at Wembley Stadium this coming weekend and it was just last weekend that they headlined the Isle of Wight Festival. So it might be some time before they get the space to create, but at least we know it’s happening.
