The Killers have unveiled details about new single, ‘Caution’, alongside details of their forthcoming, highly-anticipated sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage.
The record is set for release on May 29 on Virgin EMI. The album’s first single, ‘Caution’, is all of Imploding The Mirage’s excellence densely packed into three and a half minutes.
Both refreshingly next level and reminiscent of the band’s much-loved albums Sam’s Town and Battle Born, it finds The Killers evoking the spirit of ambitious reinvention matched with the kind of anthemic chorus to which they’ve become synonymous. The track features an iconic guitar solo courtesy of the legendary Lindsey Buckingham.

The album – produced by the band in conjunction with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen – was recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, Utah. It is the first album to be written and recorded by the band since leaving their hometown of Las Vegas.
Imploding The Mirage also features a brilliant array of collaborators, another first for the band who have typically kept guest spots on their albums to a minimum. The list of featured artists includes Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel (War On Drugs), Blake Mills, and Lucius.
Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums,
headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally. The band continues their reign as America’s heartland heroes as they head into their latest record.
Following their 2017 #1 album (their fifth UK chart topper and first US #1), Wonderful Wonderful – a love letter of sorts, as Brandon Flowers crafted songs of encouragement to his wife during crippling bouts of depression – Imploding The Mirage is the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration. It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm.
