Evan Rachel Wood Stars In Brandon Flowers 'Can't Deny My Love' Video
The clip, which stars Evan Rachel Wood alongside Flowers, as well as the Psychedelic Furs' Richard Butler, finds them in a frontier town, though things get supernatural fairly quickly as day turns to night.
The Killers frontman tells Radio.com that the video is based off Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story Young Goodman Brown, and that a high profile director was originally attached to the project.
"There's a great short story from Nathaniel Hawthorne called Young Goodman Brown," Flowers explains. "I read it recently. I got a book of classic American short stories. Just when we finished 'Can't Deny My Love,' I had just read it. I thought it would be great to just adapt it with the music. And the idea was to have it be more true to the story and have it be in the woods in the Northeast, but that did not work out. M. Night Shyamalan was supposed to do it, but it just didn't work out.
"So in the last second we had to turn it around because we were running out of time. Robert Schober, who has worked with Disturbed and the Killers (the band's 2013 video 'Shot in the Night'), did it in the Mojave desert in-between Las Vegas and L.A., a small ghost town called Calico, right outside of Barstow, Calif."
