You can see the singer explain how he balances his religion with music on NME.COM now
The singer features in a video, which you can watch by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking, which is titled ‘A Fire Still Burning’ in which he talks about his religion and being in a band cut between clips of him in the rehearsal studio performing tracks from his 2010 solo album ‘Flamingo’.
The singer also discusses the hardship of leaving his family behind when he’s touring.
I get in arguments with our booking agent if he puts us out on the road too long. You know I don’t want to miss out on things.
The Killers frontman also talks about how his lyrics have been inspired by religion and how he distances himself from a rock’n’roll lifestyle.
He goes on: “There are a lot of connotations that come along with pop music and rock music, and its usually sex driven or money driven,” he said. “I realised early on that wasn’t the road for me, maybe because of the foundations that were laid early on, or my mum and dad taking me to church.”
He adds: “I’ve definitely, even as I’ve gotten older, gotten more cautious about lyrics. I feel like I want to be a positive force in the world and I want to uplift people.”
