The Killers are back with their new single, ‘The Man’, now on our Spotify Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Following its premiere as the “Hottest Record In The World” on Radio 1’s Annie Mac show, the single, which is available to download now and on all streaming services NOW via Virgin EMI, is a first taste of the band’s eagerly anticipated fifth album, ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ (TBC).
As the first new album material from The Killers since 2012’s chart-topping ‘Battle Born’, ‘The Man’ was recorded with the producer Jacknife Lee during album sessions in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
The song finds lead vocalist Brandon Flowers looking back on his younger self, the “Brandon Flowers” persona from their Grammy-nominated debut Hot Fuss, and reconciling that wide-eyed character with the man he is now. It’s also the most infectious pop song of their already accomplished career.
‘Wonderful Wonderful’ is promises to be full of the blazing choruses and arena-filling anthems that make The Killers one of the world’s biggest and most beloved rock bands.
Before the release, the group are playing a number of shows across Europe and USA, including a return to London for their BST show at Hyde Park – the band’s first concert in the capital since their euphoric Wembley Stadium sellout show in June 2013 – on 8th July, a date that sold out in record time.
