Rock band frontman Brandon Flowers has admitted to carrying the weirdest good luck keepsake with him at all times.

The Killers’ singer, whose career was launched off the American band’s 2004 debut Mr Brightside, revealed carrying the item had become a “ritual” for him.

Believe it or not the star carrys a bag of hair shavings around with him.

And of course, it’s clumps of his own hair in the bag.

The committed Mormon told the Independent’s Radar magazine, he removed his beard – grown for the Americana-inspired second album, Sam’s Town, in 2006 – ahead of their third record two years later, but kept the shavings.

He said: “I still do it. I have a Ziplock bag full of hair.

“I’ll grow five or six days’ growth, make sure that the sink is dry, use an electric razor, catch it in the sink, and then I’m able to just scoop it into the bag.

“I don’t know what to do with it yet. It means something. It makes me think about where I stand.”

Flowers’ second solo album, The Desired Effect, is released in the UK on Monday.
