Brandon Flowers Says New Solo Album Is “Definitely Going to Be Different”

"Even though I'm still young, you can start to get set in your ways," Flowers tells NME. "Change is good and there's always growth, I'm always looking for that."

That change will be facilitated by Grammy-winner Ariel Rechtshaid, who will be producing the new album.

"He's really knowledgeable about every genre; it's pretty incredible what he's able to reference and pull out," Flowers says of Rechtshaid. "[The new album is] definitely going to be different, but I'm still in the thick of it, hammering away."

Even though The Killers are taking a break, the band did come together for their annual Christmas single. This year's song was "Joel, the Lump of Coal," which the band recorded with Jimmy Kimmel. Flowers tells NME that they also wanted "Power of Love" singer Huey Lewis to contribute to "Joel, the Lump of Coal."

"Somehow, along the way, Huey lost his involvement," Flowers says. "Jimmy had this idea of a lump of coal who goes to a bad kid and gives up his life and becomes a diamond. It’s kind of genius that it hasn’t been used."
