Brandon Flowers - The Desired Effect

Briefly discussed in The Killers thread:

Brandon releases his second album 'The Desired Effect' on 18 May. The first single 'Can't Deny My Love' is due on 23 March.

Brandon played Vive Latino where he played the single:



Very 80s (shock me, but still), actually achieves a really cool dynamic with the song and the branding he is using for the album etc.

I quite like the song, pretty catchy, will be interesting to hear with a full studio treatment.

Thoughts?

I didn't realize we already had a live version. I usually avoid this type of think, but it's Brandon, so I'll cave.

(It's at 38:16, for the lazy)

Phhheewwww. Love this. Got some "Edge of Seventeen" in there, some lovely backing vocals, and that weird sound from "Sledgehammer". I'm so pumped.

It's actually got a really cool vibe. I am pretty happy with this as a lead single.

Super jacked about this album. I will definetly have to pre order it.
Hopefully we also get a nice crop of bonus tracks like on Flamingo. They really made the album a lot better; Jacksonville and Clock Was Tickin are great.

I hope Jimmy doesn't ruin it by trying to sing along.

Definitely '80's movie montage in a good way. And I agree with whoever said they hear Edge of Seventeen in it. Well done Brandon Flowers!
