It’s been just a handful of days since The Killers released their new album, Imploding the Mirage, but the band isn’t taking a break from recording more music.
In a new interview with NME, frontman Brandon Flowers revealed The Killers are already back in the studio with plans to release another new album next year.
“Every time someone makes a record they say that they have 50 songs and they’re going to release another record. We really are,” he told the publication.
It turns out, fans won’t even have to wait that long to hear the new album. “We’re going to release another one in about 10 months. We’ve already gone back into the studio … We did a week in Northern California,” he explained.
Since The Killers aren’t going to be busy planning a tour in support of Imploding the Mirage, they have a lot more time on their hands to write and record. Plus, Flowers revealed that the creative process for the band’s recent album fueled all their creativity to keep writing.
“You kind of just start hitting your stride when you’re finishing a record. You’re writing lyrics, you’re mixing everything, you’re in it – then you go on tour. It’s interesting to not be going on tour and having any of that stuff taking up my brain. I just went right back to the piano. I was already exercising my songwriting muscles so a lot of it came very quickly,” he said.
He even said the upcoming album “might be better than this one.” We can’t wait to hear it!
