In September Brandon Flowers told Rolling Stone:
“We’ve already proven that we can write a perfect pop song, but I admire bands like the Talking Heads for having hits that are still pop and rock, but out of the norm.”
And with that Mr. Brightside’s band holed up in a Vegas studio to record tunes Brandon promises will be worth the fuss. He tells MTV News:
“This album is one of the best albums in the past 20 years. There’s nothing that touches this album.”
Cocky much? Apparently we have the Boss to blame.
“I couldn’t believe how happy his music made me and how good it was. He’s a gift, and I didn’t know. I mean, I knew ‘Born in the USA’ and ‘Glory Days,’ but I didn’t know that he covered so much ground.”
Killers’ Born To Run 2006 (not the real title) should be out sometime this year, and — just guessing — will not be one of the best albums of the last twenty years. But good luck Brandon. Maybe leave the lip gloss behind this time.
