LDS Singer Brandon Flowers's Solo Album Goes Gold, Tops UK Charts

Lead singer for The Killers Brandon Flowers reached gold-record status with his second solo album, "The Desired Effect."

The album, which reached no. 1 on U.K. music charts and no. 17 on the Billboard 200 chart, sold 500,000 copies to become a gold album. 

"Stay gold Desired Effect. Well........ for a little while anyway," the LDS singer tweeted, along with a picture of him with the gilded album. 

"I get in arguments every now and then with our booking agent if he puts us out on the road too long. . . . I don't want to miss out on things," he says. 

"It is part of my identity," Flowers told Belfast Telegraph. "It isn't something I am going to try to hide or shy away from. I guess some people are pretty private about their beliefs and their spirituality. I've always been (out there with it). It is a Mormon thing to be that (way). It is part of the deal."
