Brandon Flowers says The Killers need to "find the right groove" after admitting their last album 'Battle Born' wasn't good enough

Brandon Flowers says The Killers need to "find the right groove".

The 33-year-old singer, who is currently promoting the release of his solo album 'The Desired Effect', has confessed he would love to make another record with the band because he doesn't think their last album, 2012's 'Battle Born', was "good enough".

He explained: "It's not that I'm completely disappointed in it, but I feel like we could have done better. We just need to find the right groove and we all need to be on the same page. I don't know that we were on that record. It's tough. It's tough to get four people to, almost, share a brain. It doesn't always work out."

However, the 'Somebody Told Me' hitmaker claims his bandmates - Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannuci Jr. - weren't ready to go back to work after their greatest hits show at Wembley Stadium in 2013.

He shared: "I was feeling really excited about the prospect of what's next, but everyone else wanted to slow down a little and take some time out. So I made a solo record."

Despite insisting he would've liked to have made another album with them, Brandon admits it was easier working on his own as "it's more personal in a way".

He told Grazia magazine: "I don't feel as restricted or shy. Lyrically, I didn't have to get their opinion on anything."

Asked if he considers himself a workaholic, he added: "I guess. Some people would say that. It feels natural to me. It keeps me happy."
