Flowers Friday: He’s such a big tease!


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)

    I don’t get internet since I moved. I have to go mooch off establishments that offer free wifi, so Teralyn called me at 6am and held up her phone to her computer when it was playing on the radio. I was so giddy. I’m listening right now and I’m freaking out!!!

    • Awww that’s a good friend! It was my pleasure – and well worth going to work late to get it and share with all you cool chicks! I call it being “BranSanta” for a day ;-p

  2. Can you imagine what he’s putting his PR team through? “You guys! You know what would be killer? If we released letters one at a time to keep people drooling for the new single! And then we add instrumentals and some voice! Oh the suspense! Oh the drama!”

    And then they shake their heads and say “Okay Brandon. Whatever YOU want…again.”

    Yep, he’s a fierce divab*tch!

  3. Here is a link to some more info about the single… supposedly it’s coming out tomorrow.

    I’ve been listening to the clip on his website all day! I’m addicted to it already. =]
