Brandon Flowers – I Can Change - Single 2015


Brandon Flowers just released “I Can Change,” the fourth single from his upcoming record, The Desired Effect, and it’s just as synth pop-fueled as other recent offerings like “Lonely Town.”

This track, however, is decidedly more Killers-esque in terms of both tone and structure than the other, more cheerful, singles. Beginning as a piano ballad that transitions into a dark, driving synth beat, the song never loses an element of drama. With help from producer Ariel Rechtshaid, Flowers utilizes his powerful voice and solid composition to deliver a unique pop hit. The track sounds like it could have been written for Sam’s Town, The Killers’ sophomore album, had the band been replaced with a synthesizer.


When your time runs out
And you’re looking for a place to land
I step from the shadow
Into the palm of your hand
When you’re out of luck
I’ll be what you’re looking for
Even if it’s not who I am
When you’re out of luck
I’ll be what you’re looking for
Even if it’s not who I am
I can change
I can change for you
I can change
I can change or you

I can bend
I can break
I can shift
I can shake
Place the trail through the drive of rain
Girl I can change for you
I can change for you
