The Killers' Brandon Flowers Announces Fall Release Date for Flamingo
Published Jun 24, 2010A couple months back, the Killers frontman Brandon Flowers announced that he was temporarily setting his day job aside to record a solo album. That album, Flamingo, now has both a release date and a first single.
As New York Magazine points out, Flamingo is now due September 14, and reportedly features a guest spot by Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley).
According to Flowers, the songs on Flamingo were supposed to become the next Killers album, but it "became something else when I realized I wasn't ready to take a very long break and a couple of the guys were."
He added, "It wasn't born out of a need to do something different or to get attention or anything else."
To whet fans' appetites, Flowers has made the first single, "Crossfire," available now. Predictably, it's more than a little glammy, and features hints of disco influence, as well. You can hear "Crossfire" below.
