Rumor is Brandon Flowers first single off his solo debut Flamingo comes out next week. To stoke the already out of control fires raging in his fanbase – his website has been doing something extraordinarily clever the past week or so.
Each day the site plays the same piece of music in a loop, but adds something each time. So one day the song is keyboards and drums, the next day there’s some organ, the next bass. Yesterday all hell broke loose because THE VOICE was added (back-up only, but still!)
Not only is this a really exciting way to hear the song, but it is fun to listen to it get built layer by layer. Of course I have a playlist of every version on my iPod. Like you’re surprised.
But that’s not all – oh no – Pretty Boy Flowers also has little burning fires spelling out something in the desert. So far a C O S R and E are lighting up what is expected to be the name of the first single Crossfire (bonus points for the little crosshairs in the O web designer!)
I love me a good Advent Calendar, and this one sure is delivering. God help him if that single isn’t actually released in a few days – do you know how much time some of us have been wasting starting at a website trying to will little fiery letters into existence!??
Check it all out here. There’s only 4 letters left and in 4 days it will be Monday, singles usually drop on Tuesday. Hmmmm….
(Current rumor is that this station will be playing the song today at 3PM – no idea what time zone)
