Brandon Flowers, the lead singer of Las Vegas-based band The Killers, will release his first solo album this year. The news was revealed by a Killers fan site on a Twitter post, directing followers to the band's official website, thekillersmusic.com. The website opening page reveals the title of the solo album, "Flamingo," and directs users to sign up for email updates. The nearly identical website brandonflowersmusic.com has also been created.
The Killers alluded to the news a few days ago in a Twitter post, telling followers to check their website for "big updates." A spokesperson for The Killers confirmed the news, but revealed no other details beyond the album's name and existence. No release date has been set.
In January and February, The Killers called off multiple dates in Australia and Asia due to the death of Flowers' mother. At that time, the band also announced that they were taking a break from touring, while assuring their fans that the future of the band was not in jeopardy. "Day & Age," the Killers' last album released in November of 2008, peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on Billboard's Alternative Albums chart.
