The Killers frontman has talked about his favourite track he's released with the band, and no - it's not Mr. Brightside.

Read My Mind was the third single to be released from The Killers' album Sam's Town, and ever since the track has been a regular feature on the Las Vegas band's setlist.

But did you know that it's frontman Brandon Flowers' favourite Killers song, and the track he considers the best he's ever written?

Despite not being their most popular hit, and only charting at No.15 on the UK singles chart, Flowers has said he believes the "room changes" whenever the song plays.

Speaking in a Facebook Live Q&A back in 2017, the Las Vegas rocker said: "My favourite song, I’ve not been shy about, is Read My Mind. It doesn’t matter if we’re in a bar or an arena or a stadium or a festival or to 50 people, when Read My Mind starts, the room changes."

He added: “I guess it’s strange to have reverence for something that you had a part in creating but I guess I’m just thankful for that song."
