The Killers‘ frontman, Brandon Flowers, is about to unleash the first single from his upcoming solo effort, Flamingo. It is called “Crossfire,” and will be released to radio today, June 21 (with the album to follow in September).
While a little too U2 and a little less Pet Shop Boys than I’d like to hear from Mr. Flowers, “Crossfire” is just moody and brooding enough to whet my appetite.
“We’re caught in the crossfire of Heaven and Hell, and we’re searching for shelter,” Flowers cries out during the anthemic, arena-ready chorus, only to be immediately followed by the best parts of the song, the repeated angelic coos of “Lay your body down, lay your body down.” Mmm…
There is also talk of devils and fire, and who doesn’t like religious imagery in their songs these days?
All in all, an intriguing start to a solo campaign. I’m ready for more, please!
