The Killers have shared a new song ‘Fire in Bone’ which will also appear on the band’s upcoming album, Imploding the Mirage. The album was originally slated for release on 29 May via Island, but Rolling Stone say the band “will be receiving a new release date in the coming weeks due to delays in finalizing the album,” according to a statement. A new release date is expected shortly.
On the quirky, funky new track, Brandon Flowers lists off things that feel ‘Fire in Bone’: from feeling “empty,” “wrung-out,” “unseen” and “preyed upon,” to feeling “big time” and “major league.” It hones in on the need to appreciate those that are there to pick up the pieces, which seems particularly crucial in these times. “When I came back empty-handed, you met me in the road,” he sings. “You took me back home, after all that I took from you/After all that I put you through.” You can check ‘Fire In Bone’ out below.
This is the second song the group has shared from their new LP, after the release of lead single ‘Caution,’ which features former Fleetwood Mac star Lindsey Buckingham. The follow-up to 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful, Imploding the Mirage features guest stars Buckingham, Weyes Blood, K.D. Lang, War on Drugs’ Adam Granducil, Blake Mills and Lucius. It was produced by Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado and Shawn Everett.
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.”
Following the release of their ‘Caution’ video in March, the group’s Flowers and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. performed a stripped-down version of the song while in a bathroom for Jimmy Kimmel’s daily ‘Quarantine Minilogue Friday’.
