Brandon Flowers is planning to work on a second solo album to follow up his 2010 debut, 'Flamingo'

Brandon Flowers is planning to release a second solo album.

The Killers singer is set to turn his hand to writing tracks for the follow up to 2010's 'Flamingo' when his main band have finished touring current album 'Battle Born'.

He told NME magazine: "I'm definitely gonna do another solo record at some point 'Flamingo' wasn't just me dipping my toes in the water. I really loved it. It was successful, and that helps, but I love those songs and I miss singing them.

"It wasn't something I had totally planned on, but I'm always writing songs, and I think - or, I hope - that I'm always gonna have that. So what else am I supposed to do with myself?"

Meanwhile The Killers have also been working on new material, and have been in the studio with electronic shoegaze artist Anthony Gonzalez of M83.

Drummer Ronnie Vanucci said: "Not just demos, real recordings. I mean, you never know what it's gonna be, I guess. But we have our engineer, and we're working with a couple of surprise guests, in the producer capacity.

"Some of it is sounding really cool. We can be guilty of making things so ornate, and sometimes that's a bad thing. So I always have conversations with Brandon about working from a smaller palate, simplifying things."

"If these new tracks develop a theme, a common thread, then that could be the start of something."
