The Killers have moved to London to complete work on their second album.
Having finished sessions in hometown Las Vegas the group swapped sides of the Atlantic last week to continue working on the follow-up to ‘Hot Fuss’.
“It’s shaping up to be a lot more serious than the last album,” said frontman Brandon Flowers of their work so far. “I guess that’s because the band is growing up. We’re not singing about teenage girls anymore.”
Tracks believed to be considered for the new record include‘Have You Ever Seen The Lights?’, ‘Bling’ and ‘Sam’s Town’.
