Brandon Flowers Unveils 'Flamingo' Album Artwork, Announces U.S. Tour
I know I'm a bit late with this update but...is it really ever too late to post about the hotness that is Mormon rocker, Brandon Flowers of The Killers? I don't think so. THIS is the album artwork for his debut solo album, entitled Flamingo. It's a bit cluttered, as far as album artwork goes. Lots of THINGS in the room. Off course everything is in a nice golden-bronze sheen except for Flowers who draws the focus in a nice dark suit.
Flamingo, which features production from Stuart Price, Daniel Lanois and Brendan O’Brien, is due out September 6th in the UK and September 14th in the U.S., courtesy of Vertigo/Island Records. The first single, "Crossfire" was released digitally in North America on June 21st and will see the light of...iTunes...in the UK on August 23rd. The music video features Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron in a surprisingly meaty role as heroine to Flowers' damsel-in-distress. So far the song has peaked in the Top 20 on Billboard's Rock and Alternative Rock charts. The song has apparently been remixed by Chew Fu (GOD I hope this is true).
According to Pop In Stereo, Flowers will be setting out on tour to support his album, this summer. Playing five dates in August, Flowers will get things started on August 15th at the Las Vegas Hilton.
