Brandon Flowers will headline an Eden Session on July 12, 2011.

The Killers frontman and now solo star will be joined on the bill by special guests Mystery Jets.

Brandon Flowers' debut solo album, Flamingo, was released in September 2010 and charted at number one in the UK, giving Flowers a fourth successive chart-topping studio album, following The Killers releases Hot Fuss (2004), Sam's Town (2006) and Day And Age (2008).

Flamingo spawned the top 10 single Crossfire and saw Flowers nominated as Best Male solo artist at last year's Q Awards. A UK headline tour following the release of the album sold out in minutes.

London indie quintet Mystery Jets, founded by father and son duo Henry and Blaine Harrison, come to Eden following last year's release of their third studio album Serotonin, which built on the success of their previous releases Making Dens and Twenty-One.

Brandon Flowers and Mystery Jets join Primal Scream and The Horrors (playing on June 23), The Flaming Lips, The Go! Team and OK Go (June 30) and Fleet Foxes and Villagers (July 1) on the line-up for the 2011 Eden Sessions. More acts will be announced shortly.

Tjarko Wieringa, Eden Sessions Creative Director, said: "Brandon is one of the most recognisable and exciting artists around the moment and we're really excited that he'll be coming to Eden this summer. Flamingo was one of the best albums of last year and Brandon has proved both with The Killers and during his solo shows that he is one of the best live performers there is."

Performers at Eden in previous years include Oasis, Kasabian, Mumford & Sons, Florence and the Machine, Muse, Paul Weller, Jack Johnson, Hot Chip, Snow Patrol, Moby, PJ Harvey, The Verve, Chase & Status and many more.
