The Killers frontman releases 'The Desired Effect' on May 18
The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has revealed the album artwork and a video trailer for his second solo album ‘The Desired Effect’.
Both the album artwork (pictured above) and trailer appeared on his website alongside a handwritten note. The note details his work with producer Ariel Rechtshaid. Flowers has been working with Rechtshaid on the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Flamingo’, out on May 18, while The Killers are on hiatus.
“Ariel and I have been collaborating in the studio, working twogether [sic] in the spirit of conversation, contention, and at long last, sweet contrition,” the note reads. “No one has yet seen or heard the change. But soon, we all will.”

The album artwork follows news of first single ‘Can’t Deny My Love’,’ which The Killers frontman revealed alongside artwork and a video teaser.
Brandon Flowers recently told the NME he wants to hear songs from his new solo album on the radio, even if he admits that he finds commerical 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.”
