The Killers' Brandon Flowers announces solo album: 'Flamingo'

Brandon-FlowersImage Credit: Gaye Gerard/WireImage.comBrandon Flowers is stepping out on his own. As noted by Billboard, visitors to the Killers’ official website will currently find a neon sign flashing the frontman’s name under the headline “THE NEW SOLO ALBUM — FLAMINGO — COMING SOON.” Some spacey synths, sprightly bleeps, and a snatch of wordless falsetto loop on the soundtrack. And…that’s all we’ve got right now.

A rep for the Killers confirms to the Music Mix that Flowers has a solo album titled Flamingo on the way, but offers no further details at this time. When I spoke to Flowers last November, he dodged a question about the Killers’ studio plans: “We’re always trying to write songs. But right now we’ve got a month and a half of touring, South America and South Africa. That’s what’s on the brain.”

Are you looking forward to hearing Flamingo? What do you hope it sounds like?

    I’m so excited to see that Brandon is coming out with a solo album. After the hard family times he’s had lately, I think it’s awesome that he’s so quickly bouncing back with what I’m sure will be a fantastic album.

  • Eddie

    I’m incredibly excited about this. The Killers are a great band, and I’m looking forward to hearing Brandon’s album

    I can’t wait!!! It will sound totally different than any of his other work…because that’s how Brandon rolls!!!

  • Sharon

    I LOVE BRANDON FLOWERS!!!Flamingo will be amazing because of him lol.its a fact of life

  • S.O.

    If Julian Casablancas of The Strokes can pull off a solo album (& a very good one at that), then I’m curious to see what this will sound like.

  • Carrie

    Love The Killers. Love Brandon. I’ll buy the record as soon as it’s released. Cannot wait!

  • asha

    i cant believe this! never thought he’d do that. but its true, julian casablancas did a good job and that makes me think this is possible too. the killers better not be breaking up though.

  • lucie

  • Butters

    Big mistake.

  • MultiPass

    I’ll buy that in a gay heartbeat, hell yes. He better stick with the band longterm though.

  • Totes Magotes

    I look forward to this. Reminds me of Gord Downie from The Tragically Hip. Phenomenal band, great solo album(s). Can’t for his third one this summer and the Hip’s next record. Anyways, The Killers are amazing and I think this will be an awesome solo album.

  • Nora

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited can’t wait. it sounds great so far!!!

  • Jon

    I thought the killers disbanded already. They had an Asian tour which they inexpicably cancelled at the last minute.

    • well jon

      they didn’t disband. they canceled the shows because Brandon’s mom was dying.

  • ML

    so i wonder who will win the battle of the solo cds….brandon or the dude from fall out boy….
