Song Of The Day: The Killers' Brandon Flowers officially goes solo with 'Crossfire'
Full album due later this year, band merely on hiatus
Apparently it's Zane Lowe day today.
The song "Crossfire" leaked over the weekend, and it seems as though it was intended to be saved for September. However, it at least spurred the conversation in which Flowers confirmed that he is releasing a solo album later on in the year -- though, fans be relieved, it sounds like The Killers are not done, just taking a break for the moment.
"The guys have heard it and they understand why I'm doing it," he said. "I'm already talking to them about when we're going to get into the studio again."
"Crossfire" pretty much sounds like it could have come from spacey-dancey "Day & Age," with more focus on live instruments and pushing those vocals way way up front. Lyrically, it paints Flowers as a troubled lover: "Theres'a still in the street outside your window / you're keeping secrets on your pillow... I forget all about the storm outside / Dark clouds roll their way over town / Heartache and pain came pouring down."
