Brandon Flowers Does A Space Dance In His “Only The Young” Video

We’re not sure we would have picked Brandon Flowers’ “Only The Young” to be the next single off his solo album Flamingo, ( the upbeat ditty “Was It Something I Said?” feels more radio-friendly to us), but the Sophie Muller-directed video for the track is certainly beautiful. The clip, featuring Flowers in a Rat Pack-approved tux, looks like a sci-fi movie musical fused with a Cirque Du Soleil show. Watch below.

Brandon Flowers — “Only The Young”

It’s a kaleidoscope of glam rock! Gorgeous.

What do you think of Brandon’s latest? Loving the choreography and colors, or do you think it needs more Charlize Theron? (We wouldn’t blame you if you do.)

    the ceiling shots are great. good video overall. So maybe I miss Charlize. I’d rather a well-executed video without her than a poorly executed (despite a great concept) video with her

    Please note that this project was filmed at Le Rêve at Wynn Las Vegas. This is NOT a Cirque Du Soleil show. This show was created between a partnership of Wynn and DRAGONE. Please give the cast and crew who worked hard on this project proper credit and not people across the street who did nothing.

      Hey Margaret, didn’t know about that partnership upon writing the post. And we weren’t crediting Cirque Du Soleil, just saying the acrobatics and theatrics in the video resembled Cirque Du Soleil’s act. Thanks for the info, though!
