Above is NME's information on Brandon Flowers second solo album.

While there is no new information, Brandon does state that working with Ariel Rechtshaid has taken him out of his comfort zone.



He’s already hard at work on the follow-up to the drive-time rock of his 2010 solo album ‘Flamingo’, and he tells NME it will be released next year. “The record is not done yet, but i’m excited about it… I’m liking it,” he says. Where ‘Flamingo’ was in all-singing-and-dancing love letter to his native Las Vegas, this time Flowers is ignoring the glitzy draw of his hometown. “I’m trying to sort of stay away from that,” he says. “But I’ve always got one foot planted there, so it’s hard. People are going to interpret it how they will, but there’s only a little bit of Vegas in there.” The search for a new musical edge drove him to hip producer Ariel Rechtshaid, whose recent credits include Haim, Sky Ferreira and Vampire Weekend. “He’s taking me of my confort zone,” he says. “Normally i make demos and they’re pretty similar to how the song ends up. But he’ll take a song and be like, ‘I hear this’. It’s incredible - his palette and his range, what he’s able to say. He’ll try other ways of doing things and that’s something i’ve never really done. At first, we were butting our heads together, but now we’re hitting it off. We’re on a roll now.”

Mirror.co.uk, February 2009: On stage and on record, Brandon can play out many roles, apart from the arch romantic. For the current Killers single Spaceman, he adopted the mindset of an astronaut. “I really enjoyed writing that and becoming extra-terrestrial" he laughs. “Somehow I think I can apply it to my life and it still makes sense. I was really pleased with it." (Photography by Ben Rowland)
