Brandon Flowers may have gone back to the 1980s for inspiration for his new single "Can't Deny My Love," but for its music videos he's going all the way back to the 1830s. Today (March 30), The Killers frontman debuted the visual for the song, and with some help from Evan Rachel Wood and the short story Young Goodman Brown, we get a tale of Satanic rituals, Puritan villages and a wife who may or may not be who she claims to be.

The music video starts off with a cinematic scene between Wood and Flowers. Living in a Puritan society, Wood asks Flowers to stay with her, just for the night. But he cannot; he has some sort of very important task to do, though he promises that he'll be back before the morning.

Following the plot of Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story to the letter, Flowers ventures on railroad tracks and through the forest, only to stumble upon his fellow villagers in a compromising situation. Armed with sticks of fire, they practice what appears to be an act of Satanistic magic or witchcraft, initiating his wife into the occult. Before it's poor old Flowers turn, he wakes up, only to be left assuming what he'd lived the night before to be a dream.

But, when he returns to Wood, the truth seems to be a blur... and his society may not be so puritanical...
