A new album by the Killers is on the way. The band have announced that their fifth studio album is called, Wonderful Wonderful, expected for release later this year. It’s their first new album since 2012’s Battle Born.
So far, the band have shared two songs from Wonderful Wonderful. They just released their first official single called, “The Man,” which is available now on iTunes and streaming services. In an interview with BBC’s Annie Mac, frontman Brendon Flowers described the track as the funkiest song the group has ever written, and said that the whole album pushes the boundaries of the Killers’ usual sound.
Last weekend, the band also premiered a new song, “Run for Cover’ at a performance in Atlantic City. The band are currently on tour, playing a number of big festivals, including Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and British Summer Time in Hyde Park. They are also set to play at this year’s AFL Grand Final.
According to a press release, the new album is almost completed and is, “shaping up to be their most sonically forward-thinking record yet; an LP bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-filling anthems.” The band worked with producers, Stuart Price and Garret Jacknife Lee on the album.
