In a trailer for the album frontman Brandon Flowers says: "And the decades disappear. Two to be exact. Poof. Gone. Where did they go? I mean, we're meeting at Ronnie's after I get off this next shift at the Gold Coast, right?" No and yes.
"See it’s been said that what’s remembered lives and we’ve racked up stadiums full of memories the past twenty years, enough to fill lifetimes. Twenty songs for twenty years – Rebel Diamonds.”
He went on: "It sounds a bit like Bowie. Or is it Brando. Or maybe it's somewhere inbetween? It always is with us. And to our legion of victims. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And do not fear. There is more mining to be done. Until then what's remembered lives.
