The Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci is recording his first solo album.

The Las Vegas sticksman has flown to London to work on the record while his band are on hiatus. Details are scant, but he has spoken about why he chose to record in the UK.

"The people I trust the most with music, some of those people are here," he told BBC 6music. "From the very first moment we [The Killers] were here it solidified a bond that's undeniable. It's familiar now, it's comforting."

He added: "I felt a connection here personally and I feel most at home [here]."

Vannucci said he didn't know when his album would come out, but did speak about getting back together with his band for a few shows this year.

The Killers are already confirmed to play the new Lollapalooza festival in Chile in April, with the drummer saying there were more "one-off shows" on the cards. He said that new band material was "a way off", though.

Vannucci presented Muse with the Best British Band award at the Shockwaves NME Awards last Wednesday (February 23).
