New Brandon Flowers Single Unveiled


Not content with fronting one of the biggest bands in the world, Brandon Flowers is readying a second solo album - and the first track from it has been unveiled.

It's called Can't Deny My Love and is, in short, a massive 80s-esque pop hit which definitely has shades of Kate Bush in there as well as the likes of Haim - no surprise, given that their producer Ariel Rechtshaid was also at the controls for this track.

The song is the first to emerge from his second solo album. The Desired Effect, which comes out on May 18th.

The Killers frontman also announced a UK tour for May, with dates below - tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday.

19/5 - DUBLIN, Olympia Theatre
21/5 - LONDON, Brixton Academy
24/5 - MANCHESTER, Academy
25/5 - EDINBURGH, Usher Hall
26/5 - LEEDS, O2 Academy
28/5 - BIRMINGHAM, O2 Academy

Take a listen below, and also check out the live debut of the song, recorded at a gig in Mexico which took place over the weekend.
