Frontman Brandon Flowers told NME earlier this year that the band had been recording the new album in Utah. 

“That’s where I fell in love with music for the first time, so it’s interesting to be there again and hear some of that music with the geography matching the sensation. 

“Some of that stuff is starting to resurface and a lot of that had to do with synthesiser music,” he added. “It’s always been part of our DNA but it’s definitely creeping up.”
