All right, it came out last week, but if you’ve already seen it, just hush up and watch it again because it’s beautiful.
This song is the first glimpse of Brandon Flowers’ solo efforts (he’s also the lead singer of The Killers, just in case you don’t listen to music that is always catchy and sometimes good), and I think he’s doing pretty well all by himself. I mean, hey, he got Charlize Theron to be in his music video, and I don’t think that’s anything to shake a stick at.
Also, I love this video. Charlize Theron being a strong, dedicated heroine who saves poor, hapless Brandon Flowers from all of his unfortunate run-ins with ninjas – what’s not to love? I also think the ending is lovely, but then again I’ve always been a sucker for tales of damsels in distress with happy endings, and Brandon Flowers makes for a really attractive damsel. Who knew?
