New music from the Killers’ bass player is here

As the Killers continue to labor away on their fourth studio album, bass player Mark Stoermer is also keeping active readying his debut solo album. Now, the groove-happy player has stated that he is giving away his debut solo album as a free download. No strings attached.

The album, Another Life, is available via Stoermer’s official website. But, fans should act fast to lap up this one, as the album is only available for free for a limited time. The compilation will be available for purchase on CD and vinyl in the coming weeks. Head to the website, and fans can stream three tracks from the release before downloading: “Everyone Loves the Girl,” “The Way We Were Before” and “Amber Bough.”

Stoermer isn’t the only Killer to flirt with the solo route. Lead singer Brandon Flowers released his solo album, Flamingo, in 2010, and drummer Ronnie Vanucci released his solo effort, Big Talk, this year. As for the Killers’ songs, Vanucci recently told NME.com that if he had to pick one song to play from the alternative rock band’s famed, Sam’s Town LP, it would be “When You Were Young. “I think I would have picked ‘When You Were Young’ – I have more of an intrinsic connection to that one,” he said. “But I still love [‘Mr. Brightside’]. That one’s still fun to play live.”

He added that he think people’s really grabbed onto “Mr. Brightside” because of “the vulnerability of what the song is saying. I think so many people have been there. It’s almost 10 years old. I think when it was first introduced, it had that vulnerability in the lyrics. I think people could connect with it and sink their teeth into it.”
