The Killers dedicated a stripped-down performance of their recent single ‘Caution’ on The Tonight Show last night (May 13) to the “heroic” healthcare workers battling coronavirus — you can check out their remote performance below.
Brandon Flowers and Ronnie Vannucci submitted a home-recorded rendition of ‘Caution’, which will feature on the band’s upcoming new album Imploding The Mirage, for the Jimmy Fallon-hosted Tonight Show.
Vannucci dedicated the performance to healthcare workers “who are putting themselves out on the frontlines helping everybody in need”.
“We can’t tell you how much we appreciate that and how heroic that is,” he added.
Elsewhere, The Killers have been entertaining fans during the coronavirus lockdown by debuting new material and covering classic songs.
Last month, they debuted the track ‘Blowback’ and covered Tom Petty’s ‘The Waiting’, while they released the latest Imploding The Mirage single ‘Fire In Bone’ on 24 April.
The Killers previously described Imploding The Mirage as “the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration. It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm.”
The Las Vegas band have been forced to postpone both the release of Imploding The Mirage and their planned UK and Ireland tour due to the coronavirus outbreak. While it’s hoped that the record will still come out in 2020, the tour has been pushed back to 2021. You can check out the band’s amended live schedule below.
