The Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers announces solo album
Titled "Flamingo," the set has no release date yet, but would be singers' first effort done outside of the group. There is currently a music loop of about 1:30 on those websites, mostly a beat, a slide guitar riff, and Flowers' breathing out a simple "hah "syllable vocal line. Whatever it is, we like it. If it's anything like "Human," we'll really really like it.
The Las Vegas-based band alluded to big announcements in their Twitter earlier in the week, declaring: "Check back here... for real news, true stories, big updates, and sights & sounds both new and old."
They were largely dormant since last Tweeting in February. The group only recently concluded their Day & Age tour, which included some cancelations earlier in the year: Flowers was a dealt a blow on Feb. 11, when his mother died. Perhaps that provides some inspiration for the songwriting?
The Killers' last album, "Day & Age," was out in November 2008.
