2015 single by Brandon Flowers

Can’t Deny My Love” is the lead single by American singer-songwriter Brandon Flowers from his second studio album, The Desired Effect.[3]

Composition[edit]

Flowers asked drummer Darren Beckett for a beat, Beckett obliged and Flowers then wrote the song using one of the recorded beats Beckett sent him.[4]

Promotion[edit]

The single debuted on Annie Mac’s show on BBC Radio 1 on March 23, 2015.[5] Flowers performed “Can’t Deny My Love” for the first time on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the same evening.[6]

Music video[edit]

In promotion of the video, Flowers’s YouTube channel released a series of clips featuring a walking traveler carrying a flame.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13]

The music video was inspired by the 1835 Puritan short story “Young Goodman Brown” by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Flowers plays the protagonist who leaves his wife played by actress Evan Rachel Wood for an unknown errand in the desert despite her pleas that he stay. On his journey he meets a man with a black staff played by Richard Butler (of the Psychedelic Furs). Soon he discovers a group of townspeople assembled in robes carrying out witchcraft like ceremonies and discovers his wife among them. The townspeople notice him but as they approach the scene instantly vanishes and he awakes uncertain whether the previous night’s events were real or a dream. He passes by several of the townspeople and returns to his wife.[14][15][16] Originally, M. Night Shyamalan was expected to direct the video in the Northeast but at the last second Robert Schober was asked to film the video in Calico, San Bernardino County, California.[17]
