Brandon Flowers Releases 'Lonely Town' Video

(Radio.com) Brandon Flowers is nowhere to be seen in his new video for "Lonely Town," but that doesn't mean he isn't there watching you in the darkness. The throwback clip plays out like a horror movie set in the early '80s, complete with short, shorts, Walkmans and dancing in the kitchen.

Flowers told Radio.com the track is actually his take on The Police's "Every Breath You Take" where things are much creepy than you may have first thought.

"If you're not listening closely, it just feels like this breezy love song," Flowers says of The Desired Effect track. "But, if you wrote the lyrics down or listened to them a little more intently, it's actually pretty creepy."

On "Lonely Town" Flowers sings the rather harmless line, "When will you come home again?" but suggests that the listener take an extra few seconds to really think about the duality of that line.

"It sounds all nice, 'When will you come home again?,' but it's really scary," he says, laughing. "Someone saying, 'When will you come home again? Did you lock the door when it shut?' You know, those lines can mean a variety of things." Check out the video here.
