Fresh off the release of last month’s ‘Pressure Machine’, we hopped on the phone with The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers to find out all about the record for our new issue.

A more personal insight into Brandon’s Utah hometown, it also finds the group collabing with DIY fave Phoebe Bridgers.

“I was driving in the mountains and I heard ‘Funeral’ on a college radio station in Utah,” Brandon says of his first time hearing her music. “I hadn’t heard her before, but I knew it was her because I’d read about her. The song was so good – it was so beautiful and so sad. It’s one of the few times where I knew it was that person before I had confirmation. I found out she’s a Killers fan and so it was wonderful to be able to have this full-circle moment with her [on ‘Runaway Horses’].”
