Brandon Flowers' "Can't Deny My Love" video stars Evan Rachel Wood. Watch it now.

Brandon Flowers follows up “Can’t Deny My Love,” “Still Want You” and “Lonely Town” with yet another synth-drenched preview of his upcoming LP The Desired Effect — this time, it’s “I Can Change.” The track features Flowers’ soaring tenor (which careens into a falsetto at various points) and a sample of Bronski Beat’s 1984 gay anthem “Smalltown Boy.”

Gotta say, Brandon is four for four so far with this album, which is giving us a hefty amount of hope that it’ll be sitting nicely on our Best list come December.

Listen to “I Can Change,” then watch the video for “Smalltown Boy,” below.
