The Killers singer Brandon Flowers has revealed all about their new album.

According to Flowers, the follow up to ‘Hot Fuss’, will focus on American influences rather than English ones.

“(The album is) more American. People called us the best English band to come from America and all that shit,” he told Rolling Stone“That’s cool, and English rock is great but it’s forced me to listen to American music to see what I was missing.”

He cites Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road’ and the work of US singer/songwriter Tom Petty as influences.

The band are set to go into the studio next week (February 15) with producers Flood and Alan Moulder.

Mooted new tracks include ‘The River Is Wild', ‘For Reasons Unknown' and 'Peace of Mind'.
