The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers says the band need to "find the right grove" as their last album, Battle Born, wasn't good enough.

The 33-year-old singer, who is currently promoting the release of his solo album, The Desired Effect, admitted he would love to get back into the studio with The Killers as he doesn't think their last album, Battle Born, was good enough.

Flowers explains: ''It's not that I'm completely disappointed in it, but I feel like we could have done better. We just need to find the right groove and we all need to be on the same page.

"I don't know that we were on that record. It's tough. It's tough to get four people to, almost, share a brain. It doesn't always work out.''

He added: ''I was feeling really excited about the prospect of what's next, but everyone else wanted to slow down a little and take some time out. So I made a solo record.''

Despite insisting he would've liked to have made another album with them, Brandon admits it was easier working on his own as ''it's more personal in a way''.

He told Grazia magazine: ''I don't feel as restricted or shy. Lyrically, I didn't have to get their opinion on anything.''
