New The Killers song Some Kind Of Love is said to be inspired by Brian Eno, who’s even credited as a songwriter on the track. Some Kind Of Love draws heavily from Brian Eno’s 1983 song An Ending (Ascent). It’s a serenely meandering, ambient roaming beauty, topped off with Brandon Flowers’ signature vocals and the Vegas heartthrobs’ trademark heartland twang. Some Kind Of Love drips with optimism and hope. It’s the heartening and inspiring anthem we all need. New The Killers album Wonderful Wonderful arrives September 22nd on Island Records, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people are wild with excitement for the release. If you haven’t pre-ordered the album yet, you can do so, here.

We received thrilling news from The Killers last month when the legendary Vegas heartthrobs unveiled new song The Man and announced a fifth studio album named Wonderful Wonderful. The fellows have since announced their Wonderful Wonderful World Tour and revealed details for the new album, too. Wonderful Wonderful will be out on September 22nd on Island Records, and you can already pre-order the album via digital service providers, here. With the purchase comes an instant download of today’s new single, Run For Cover. If you’ve been a long time fan of the band, then you’re going to love how this one conjures early The Killers, from the Hot Fuss and Sam’s Town eras. Its high energy, beatific combination of post-punk, heartland rock, and new wave is exactly the sort of epic, widescreen The Killers I’ve been missing for a very long time. The stadium ready anthem can also be streamed via YouTube below.

It’s been an incredible week for music, and we’re only at Wednesday, too. Countless artists and bands have unveiled extensive fall tour plans, and many have also regaled us with new album announcements. The Killers’ fifth album, Wonderful Wonderful, is one such treat, and it’ll be arriving later this year. It feels like much of the world has been waiting for new music from the beloved Vegas veterans. Waking up to a new single was cause for much excitement. The Brandon Flowers lead troupe are back with a funktastic jam named The Man that strays far from their old heartland rock sound. In fact, glamorous The Man’s confident swagger heavily reminds me of Arcade Fire crossed with Saint Motel. It’s a proper tune for strutting down the Vegas strip, or even dancing on the street in your best glitter dusted disco garb. 

OFFICIAL VID: The Killers – Christmas in L.A.

December 3, 2013

Can you believe it’s December already? Sheesh! A sure sign of the Holidays creeping right up on us soon is the annual tradition of a Christmas song by The Killers. Yep. Christmas song. Already. This year, they’ve released a track titled Christmas in L.A., a slow burner of a somber tune. The music video features actor Owen Wilson and the song features folk rock band Dawes. As always, all proceeds from the song will go to the AIDs charity (RED).

OFFICIAL VID: The Killers – Just Another Girl

November 26, 2013

I suppose the cool new The Killers video is a requisite share. Just Another Girl is one of two new tracks on their greatest hits compilation Direct Hits, out right now. It’s the perfect example of that heartache inducing heartland Vegas rock that we’ve come to love about this band. The new video for the song stars Glee’s Dianna Agron. It’s a very imaginative video that employs her in recreating scenes from various music videos throughout the band’s career. She takes the place of Brandon Flowers in recognizable setting after another. I agree that Brandon Flowers is one pretty man, but he sure got even prettier! It’s fun trying to name all the songs for which videos are referenced in the clip.

The Killers – Just Another Girl

November 5, 2013

We’ve heard The Killers’ collaboration with M83, Shot At The Night. The dream pop/rock blending track is off The Killers greatest hits album Direct Hits, out on November 11. They previously announced there’d be two new songs on the release. Check out the second one below, courtesy of VH1. Just Another Girl is a melancholic, heartland arena rock track very typical of The Killers’ signature sound. Ah, that romantic Brandon Flowers, singing about unrequited love yet again… sigh.

Calvin Harris remixed The Killers’ When You Were Young

October 26, 2013

There’s no denying enjoyment of Calvin Harris’ remix of The Killers’ When You Were Young. It’s still one of The Killers best songs (out of many). After all, it was off Sam’s Town. That was a heckuva good album. Calvin Harris’ dance remix stays quiet true to the original. The jump ready house edit and the infectious chorus of the song is just too uplifting. This is far too fitting for the weekend. The song is a bonus track off of The Killers’ coming compilation album Direct Hits, out November 11.
