the killers' brandon flowers release his debut solo album, 'flamingo' on vertigo records. produced by stuart price, daniel lanois, and brendan o'brien, 'flamingo' is a brilliant 10-song collection from an artist whose voice and songwriting prowess have left an indelible mark on the music world. the album's infectious first single, 'crossfire' is a rousing, epic rocker. while writing on the road during eighteen months of touring for the killers' acclaimed, million plus-selling (uk), 2008 album, 'day and age', flowers originally intended for the songs on flamingo to be the start of a new killers album. when the band returned to their hometown of vegas, however, they collectively decided to take an extended break, the result of having spent nearly seven years straight touring the globe. not ready to put the songs he had written on hold, flowers retreated to the band's studio, battle born, ready to commit his songs to tape. he started working with producer stuart price, who had helmed the production on 'day and age', and eventually decided to invite his dream team of collaborators into the studio as well. this list included producers daniel lanois and brendan o'brien, both of whom immediately joined the project, as well as musician jenny lewis, who contributes backing vocals to two of the album's ten tracks.
