Brandon Flowers and co are currently working on the follow-up to 2012’s Battle Born and have apparently been working with Elton John on new material.

It seems that the legend’s influence has rubbed off on Brandon, as he aired a new piano-based composition.

At a show in Ontario, Canada on Thursday (2 June), Brandon Flowers debuted a new, unknown song solo, before leading the band into Bling (Confessions Of A King).

Meanwhile, Jake Blanton stepped in on bass duties as founding member Mark Stoermer has quit touring with the band, “to pursue other educational goals and release a solo album”.

The show also saw the band cover Interpol’s Obstacle 1, from the New York band’s debut album Turn On The Bright Lights. “There were a couple of bands that really lit a fire under us when we were first starting,” said Flowers. “Interpol was one of them.”
