The Killers have released their first single from upcoming album Wonderful Wonderful.
Titled ‘The Man’, the song — a sinister disco track that takes inspiration from Depeche Mode — was premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show and is now available on Spotify.
The track was recorded during sessions in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with Jacknife Lee, the upcoming album marking the band’s first LP since 2012’s Battle Born.
Between Battle Born and Wonderful Wonderful, lead singer Brandon Flowers’ released solo album The Desired Effect in 2015, a follow-up to Flamingo.
The album has yet to receive a release date, the band’s press release calling it “soon-to-be completed” while labelling the record their “most sonically forward-thinking record yet; an LP bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-filling anthems”.
While partaking in a Facebook Q&A, Flowers revealed his favourite song from The Killers’ back catalogue: “My favourite song, I’ve not been shy about, is ‘Read My Mind’ [from 2006’s ‘Sam’s Town],” he said, via NME. “It doesn’t matter if we’re in a bar or an arena or a stadium or a festival or to 50 people, when ‘Read My Mind’ starts, the room changes.”
