Brandon Flowers' Second Solo Album

NME reports that Brandon Flowers of The Killers has plans to record a second solo album after the band wraps up their current tour.  That would result in a 2015 release date, which is quite the wait, but do you remember Flamingo?  I feel like people generally forget about that album's existence.  I found it to be thoroughly enjoyable.  It proved how much of an influence he has over The Killers' sound.  Anyways, mark your calendars for 2015!

ARTPOP Track Listing

I wouldn't exactly say that I love this, but I feel like discussing it.  Let's say that one year ago, someone asked you who Lady Gaga would be collaborating with on her next album.  Which artists would you have guessed?  Maybe a big pop name like Katy Perry or someone a bit more obscure and more prominent in the art scene?  Well either way you're wrong.  Not in a million years would I have ever said R. Kelly, T. I., Too $hort, and Twista.

What alternate reality have we entered and is it too late to turn back?  All four of those names will be featured on her upcoming album, ARTPOP.  She revealed the track listing Wednesday night over Twitter and now the entire pop world is collectively confused.  Check out the full track listing below and pre-order ARTPOP here.  You can also watch the ridiculous "Aura" Machete Kills lyric video below.

  1. Thanks for this bit b/c I hadn't yet heard Brandon Flowers was planning another solo album. Flamingo is one of my favorites and sometimes I go for that over a Killers' album.
