Brandon Flowers Is Recording With New Order

The Killers got their name from a fictional band in a New Order music video back in 2001, and now things have come full circle: NME reports that Brandon Flowers has been working with the iconic band in the studio. He’s played with the band live a few times before, but this is the first time they’re working on music together, as far as we know. And considering that Flowers’ very good new album comes out next week, it’s more than likely that he’ll be contributing to New Order’s next record, which will be their first without Peter Hook. But it’s not definite that it’ll make the cut: “I might be on a New Order song,” he remarked to The Independent. “So that’s cool.” Indeed it is.
