Ready to release his sophomore solo album, Brandon Flowers talks about his new record “The Desired Effect.” In an interview with Rolling Stone, The Killers vocalist couldn’t hide his excitement for his record as the release of his LP is expected in a few weeks.
“I’m not even going to lie – this record, man, it’s relentless,” Flowers said.
“I’m not afraid to say it.
I see the checkered flag in front of me, and I’m starting to get excited.” “On the first record, I was holding things back.
I’m not holding back on this record.
I just want to write the best thing I can and put it out right now.” As seen on his first record as a solo artist, the second disc is still expected to have the “anthemic choruses” commonly seen in his works and the beats that spell The Killers all over.
“I want to tell the truth,” he said.
“And the truth is, sometimes I love pop songs – I respect the craft and the history of that.
But I also love telling stories and applying my experiences and observations.
You hit a home run when those worlds can all work together.” Meanwhile, as Brandon Flowers is waiting for the release of his new album, he revealed that he is still confident with what The Killers has left in 2012 when they released “Battle Born.” “I was feeling pretty confident coming off the back of ‘Battle Born,’ even though it wasn’t a huge success,” he says.
“I felt like we were making a great rock record and that it would stand for something.
It didn’t work.
But it was also fine that it didn’t work – the gigs were the best they’ve ever been.
And I just kept going.
I feel like I have a job to do.”
