The first leak from Brandon Flowers’s debut solo album that maybe could have been a Killers album (Flowers hinted that he wanted it to be, but the NME confirms that the band are still on hiatus) is here. “Crossfire” certainly sounds a lot like Sam’s Town, especially its huge, soaring chorus and vaguely inspiring lyrics. The verses also sound a lot like U2. Daniel Lanois (who’s done lots of work with U2), as well as Brendan O’Brien and Stuart Price produced the record. Have a listen below:
Flamingo is due out sometime in September.
