Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Crossfire. By Songfacts®.

This is the first single from Flamingo, the debut studio album by The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers. The song was played for the first time on June 14th, 2010 in the UK on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show and was released on June 21st in the USA and Canada.

The song was produced by Stuart Price, who helmed the Killers' 2008 album Day & Age and who has twiddled knobs for many other artists including Madonna and Kylie Minogue.

Many of Flamingo's tracks were originally intended for a Killers album. But when the band decided to take a break, Flowers wasn't ready to stop recording. The Nevada-born singer told Zane Lowe why he decided to record a solo album: "This started out that way - it just became something else when I realized I wasn't ready to take a very long break and a couple of the guys were. It was weird. Without union and the Killers and that way of doing things and friendship. I had fun making the record but that brotherhood didn't exist. At times it was a little bit lonely. It wasn't born out of a need to do something different or to get attention or anything else - it was really to make music."
