The Killers Drop Their New Song ‘The Man’

June 16, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

The Killers have released a new song called “The Man,” which is from their upcoming fifth album Wonderful Wonderful. In a statement, the band said the album is “soon to be completed.” This is the first new album track from the band since 2012’s Battle Born. The song was produced by Jacknife Lee.

The band debuted the song on BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac show, which also featured an interview with frontman Brandon Flowers. He said of the song: “Sonically, it’s pretty funky, funkier than we’ve ever done before.

He said that getting together to rehearse old songs is easy when preparing for tour, but writing together is more difficult because “you’re literally waiting for lightning to strike.” He said the album represents the band moving forward because “we’re growing in a lot of ways.” The band will go on a European tour this summer, starting June 22 at the Tinderbox Festival in Denmark. They will return to the US for Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 4.
