Brandon Flowers Promises He “Can Change” on New Track


Following the release of his last couple of songs, Brandon Flowers is back with another new track from his impending album, The Desired Effect.

The song is titled “I Can Change” and to us, sounds very much like something up Flowers’ alley; a very 80s feeling tune.

Listen to the audio for  “I Can Change” below which made its worldwide debut yesterday (April 30) on BBC Radio 2 and Bronski Beat’s 1984 hit, “Smalltown Boy.”

Earlier this week, The Killers frontman released the music video for his third song off The Desired Effect, “Lonely Town.” “Lonely Town” and “I Can Change” join “Still Want You” and lead single “Can’t Deny My Love” on the album.

The Desired Effect is set to be released on May 18 through Island Records. Flowers’ sophomore effort will feature guest appearances from Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant, Haim singer Danielle Haim, and fellow Killers band mate Ronnie Vannucci.

Brandon Flowers Proves He “Still Wants You” in New Song


As the release date for Brandon Flowers’ new album gets closer, the musician keeps dropping tracks for the fans to get excited for.

Two weeks ago, we got the music video for his lead single, “Can’t Deny My Love” and during the weekend, The Killers frontman released his second single, “Still Want You” and its corresponding music video.

The black and white video features Flowers in different locations such as in a warehouse, in a dark room, and on a stage with back-up singers as he sings the song.

It’s also nice to point out that one of the scenes which features Flowers’ finger playing an “invisible piano” also happens to be one of the snippets the singer posted before officially confirming the released of The Desired Effect.

Check out the full music video below..

The Desired Effect will be released on May 18 through Island Records.

The Killers Frontman Announces Sophomore Album Title, Release Date


The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has officially announced his sophomore solo album will be released this Spring.

Late Friday evening, Flowers released a teaser on his website of a hand (his, we assume) playing an invisible piano. The short video sparked talks that Flowers'”in the works” studio album would be released sometime soon.

Today, the singer confirmed the news on his website with a handwritten note to fans.

The new album will be titled The Desired Effect and is set to be released on May 18.

Last August, Flowers revealed that he would be heading into the studio with producer Ariel Rechtshaid who had previously worked with Vampire Weekend, HAIM, and Charli XCX.

He also told the interviewer that unlike 2010’s Flamingo, The Desired Effect would not be as influenced by his hometown of Las Vegas. Instead, with Rechtshaid producing the album, they decided to go in a different direction with this album.

Check out the teaser for the new album as well as Flowers’ handwritten letter.
