The Killers' guitarist Dave Keuning is gearing up for the release of his first solo album, Prismism -- whose title track video is premiering exclusively below. And he tells Billboard that, "I just wish I would've done it sooner."
Prior to this, of course, Keuning was active with the Killers, especially during the cycles for the group's first four albums. "It seemed like every time there was a break, there was no time for my solo record, really," the multi-instrumentalist says. "And even then, I would write things that I was kind of hoping would get used by the Killers." He finally made Prismism -- due out in January under the name Keuning -- a reality by dropping out of the Killers touring lineup to devote himself to the project.
"I didn't drop out of the Killers just to do this (album); It was just going to be too long of a tour for me," Keuning explains. But it was nevertheless "very refreshing and just felt free and I think I needed this. I don't think I've had this much fun making music in a long, long, long time.
