The Killers have released a video for brand new single ‘Caution’, taken from their upcoming album Imploding The Mirage. You can check it out below.
The ‘Caution’ video is the first glimpse of a short film the band has made in conjunction with director Sing Lee, coming soon to Apple Music.
NME said of the new track: “On ‘Caution’, the disco strut of The Man and the inventive sensitivities of 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful are set aside for a propulsive charge for the synth rock horizon, with Brandon Flowers once more out to make heroes of the down-beaten.”
“‘Let me introduce you to the featherweight queen,” Flowers sings on the anthemic new track. “She got Hollywood eyes but she can’t shoot what she sees/Her mama was a dancer and that’s all that she knew/‘Cause when you live in the desert it’s what pretty girls do.’”
Imploding The Mirage is The Killers’ sixth studio album and is the follow-up to 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful. Produced by the band with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen, it’s the first Killers album to be written and recorded since the band left their hometown of Las Vegas. The record features guest spots from Lindsey Buckingham, as well as kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel of War On Drugs, Blake Mills, and Lucius.
Earlier this week, The Killers postponed the sale of tickets for their upcoming late summer/fall shows due to the coronavirus outbreak.Sharing a statement on social media, the band said the reason for the tickets not going on sale yet is because “the news is changing every hour around coronavirus,” and that they want their fans “to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe and cautious right now.”
Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally.
Imploding The Mirage is out on 29 May and can be pre-ordered here.
