Live Gig Video: Brandon Flowers performs ‘I Can Change’ at London Brixton Academy

 
By on Monday, 27th July 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

Back in May, Brandon Flowers played two back-to-back nights at London Brixton Academy. Lucky for us and anyone out there who weren’t able to be at either gig, he has recorded this live performance of ‘I Can Change’. The soulful, r&b-tinged song – sampling Bronski Beat’s ‘Smalltown Boy’ and guesting Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys, no less – floats through the rafters as punters file into the venue from the queue outside and continues on as Flowers take the stage. Watch the drama unfold below.

‘The Desired Effect’, Brandon Flowers’ second solo album following the release of ‘Flamingo’ in 2010, is out now.

Here is the new promo video for Brandon Flowers‘ ‘Crossfire’ costarring actress Charlize Theron. Not really sure what the video has to do with the song and is nothing like I expected from the lyrics but…just watch and tell us what you think. I’ve also included a behind the scenes video as well.

Read my earlier review of the single here.
