Elton John working on new The Killers LP

Sir Elton John is working with Brandon Flowers on the new Killers album.

The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker revealed his plans to head out to Las Vegas to lend his expert songwriting skills to the rock band and he's looking forward to getting in the studio with the 34-year-old singer.

Elton, 68, told Shazam: "I'm hoping to go to Las Vegas and write with Brandon Flowers for the new Killers record. So that'll be interesting."

News of the two music icons joining forces follows an Apple Beats 1 radio show by Elton called 'Rocket Hour', which was broadcast back in November.

Elton invited Brandon onto the show where they both shared equal amounts of admiration for each other's work.

The British legend complimented Brandon's songs and shared how they always listen to each other's albums and give each other feedback.

Speaking at the time, Elton - who is married to David Furnish - said: "When Brandon makes a record - whether it's for The Killers or on his own - he comes and plays me the album. Usually, I'm very happy and excited to hear it. And I usually play mine to him."

The Killers next LP will be their first record since 2012's 'Battle Born'.
