The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has unveiled a new song called ‘Can’t Deny My Love’.
Flowers will release his second solo album, ‘The Desired Effect’, on May 18, preceding it with this lead single. Listen to the synth-pop track via Stereogum. The song goes on sale in the early hours of tomorrow morning (March 24).
The album features guest appearances from Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant, The Killers’ Ronnie Vannucci and Haim frontwoman Danielle Haim. Flowers recently told the NME that he wants to hear songs from his new solo album on the radio, even if he admits that he finds commercial music in 2015 to be a “weird world”.
“I want to be on the radio,” Flowers says. “I’ve never been ashamed to say that. I can’t believe where radio has gone. It seems to be such a weird world now. Where once I seemed to fit in, now I’m seen as a little different. I used to be considered mainstream, but now I’m almost avant-garde or art rock compared to what’s on the radio.”
The singer has also announced five UK solo dates taking place in May, with shows in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds and Birmingham from May 21.
Brandon Flowers will play:
London Brixton Academy (May 21)
Manchester Academy (24)
Edinburgh Usher Hall (25)
Leeds O2 Academy (26)
Birmingham O2 Academy (28)
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (March 27), with a fanclub presale available from Wednesday 25 March. To check the availability of Brandon Flowers tickets, click here.
