No thread for him so here is one to disscuss his upcoming solo album he anounced a month or so ago.

He has got the following producing;

Stuart Price [Day and Age]
Daniel Lanois [Brian Eno, U2]
Brendan O'Brien [AC/DC, Bob Dylan, RATM, Springsteen, Pearl Jam]

Seems like its going to be a mix of the Day and Age style coming from Price, and a mix of Hot Fuss and Sam's Town coming from Lanois and O'Brien, a few people have tweeted about the album, abviously people who have a demo of it, most likely radio DJ's have been all been impressed.

Thought I'd set this up for Killers fans.

First word that comes into my head when i read this is dodgy. However, i wont judge till i hear it! When is it due to be released?

September/November 2010, like I said up there, the poeple who have the demo like radio DJ's have been singing it's praises, the guy knows how to write on his own, he wrote All These Things That I've done & Tranquilize among others on his own.

A short demo with no lyrics is on his website [or you tube] for those who are interested;

It's sort of a cross between Bryan Ferry and MGMT, nice useage of the slide guitar!

It grows on you too.

The lead single is believed to be called Crossfire

The demo [on his site], its not known what track that one is.

First single to be played in 3 weeks on XFM.

That what was said in an interview with XFM, not sure when the 3 weeks was from though, but it will certainly air on XFM before the end of June!

Citing!

Does nobody else think that it just sounds like The Killers anyway? Personally I think The Killers have been getting steadily worse since Hot Fuss but he seems to me to be just following on what he's been doing with The Killers, just with his own name on the front of the album instead of the band's.

Jacksonville and Playing With Fire don't sound like The Killers, but tracks like I Came Here To Get Over You and Only The Young do.

Hot Fuss and Sam's Town are brilliant, Sawdust is basically a b-side to both of them albums and just as good, but Day and Age is a Joke << From a Killers fan.

If you are going to listen or buy the album, buy the deluxe version, it has Jacksonville on it!

Yeah Im not mad on the new direction that The Killers are taking!! However I won't judge good old Brandon completely until Ive heard the whole album!
#17
I'm pretty anxious to hear it actually.
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
I had the blankest year,
I watched life turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

So the album is out and pretty awesome in my opinion. Magdalena is an amazing song.
