Brandon Flowers has confirmed he’s working on a second solo album, a follow up to 2010’s Flamingo.

Speaking to NME, the Killers frontman has detailed he’s working with producer Ariel Rechstadt, with the aim to release new material next year.

"He's taking me out of my comfort zone," Flowers said when talking about the producer, who has worked with Vampire Weekend, Haim, and Rae Morris in the past. 

"Normally I make demos and they're pretty similar to how the songs end up. But he'll take the song and be like, 'I hear this’… It's incredible - his palette and his range, what he's able to say. He'll try other ways of doing things and that's something I've never really done.”

The singer was quick to dismiss the idea that this record would focus on his hometown of Las Vegas like the debut, instead explaining "I'm trying to sort of stay away from that, but I've always got one foot planted there, so it's hard.” 

"People are going to interpret it how they will, but there's only a little bit of Vegas in there"

Despite work on the record seemingly going well, fans can’t expect a release anytime soon, with Flowers explaining "The record's not done yet, but I'm excited about it”.

The Killers have just finished a short run of UK festival dates this summer, including headline slots at T in the Park and V Festival.

There are currently no UK dates on the horizon for The Killers, or Flowers as a solo artist.
