There are few things that we at MuchMusic love more than unexpected collaborations and it seems like there is a doozy in the works between Tom Jones and The Killers.
The singer, most famous for his hit “It’s Not Unusual,” played at the 2010 Latitude Festival in England and said backstage that he has been chatting with The Killers’ lead singer Brandon Flowers. “He said he admired what I’d done in my career. There’s a connection there because he’s from Las Vegas, and of course I’ve performed there so many times over the years,” Jones said.
Flowers has been busy with his own solo work but Jones says he will be ready to collaborate whenever they find a song that fits. “The material has to be right. That’s always been my main concern, with whichever people I’ve worked with,” he said.
The world is going to have to try hard to beat this as most awesome news of the day.Tweet
