is The Killers most personal album to date. "I'm turning it around. I'm turning the pen around on myself," Flowers told NME
. "I'm looking in the mirror on this record and focusing a lot on my own personal experiences. Instead of just drawing upon all these experiences and maybe using them in other songs, I am going straight for it with this and singing about my life and my family and that's something different for me."
"What I like about it is that songs that I love to perform the most are songs that sort of went into that territory and connect with people," he continued. "Even 'Mr. Brightside
' was a personal song, or 'Read My Mind
' – these are songs I love to perform, tend to come from those real places. I really wanted to do that more on this record."
