The Killers frontman will release his new solo album ‘The Desired Effect’ on May 18.

Brandon Flowers recently revealed that the appearance of Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant on his new album comes in the form of a spoken voicemail message. Tennant features on ‘I Can Change’, with Flowers explaining: “I’m a big Pet Shop Boys fan, and Ariel [Rechtshaid, producer of ‘The Desired Effect’]’s a big Pet Shop Boys fan. We just talked about it, and we just had this gap in a verse and we needed to stick something in there. We were talking about it being a speaking part, and the greatest musical ‘speaker’ is Neil Tennant! His voice is like no other.”

He added: “I texted him if he would – he didn’t even hear the song or the tempo or anything, I just texted him this line. I asked, ‘Will you send us a voicemail of yourself saying, ‘When you’re looking for a change’?’ And that was it. He sent us a voice memo, and we stuck it onto the track, from the phone. It was done within 20 seconds.”

Brandon Flowers will play five UK shows in May. The dates are as follows:

London Brixton Academy (May 21)
Manchester Academy (24)
Edinburgh Usher Hall (25)
Leeds O2 Academy (26)
Birmingham O2 Academy (28)
