The Killers have revealed the tracklist of their new album Pressure Machine, including a song featuring Phoebe Bridgers. The Las Vegas band will release their seventh record and follow-up to 2020’s Imploding The Mirage next week (August 13).
After sharing a teaser of harmonica-filled new music as part of a new album trailer earlier today (August 2), the band has now revealed the album’s 11-song tracklist.
The album was co-produced by the band, Shawn Everett, and Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), all of whom worked together on The Killers’ critically-acclaimed album Imploding The Mirage, released last year.
When the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the promotional run and worldwide tour for The Killers’ critically-acclaimed 2020 album Imploding the Mirage, “everything came to this grinding halt,” says frontman Brandon Flowers. “And it was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence. And out of that silence this record began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records.”
“We were discussing [Brandon] moving to Nephi as a kid and being stuck in the middle of nowhere,” says the band’s drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. “And during Covid-19, it started to feel like we were all in the middle of nowhere.” Concurs Flowers, “I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with,” he says, “many memories of my time in Nephi are tender. But the ones tied to fear or great sadness were emotionally charged. I’ve got more understanding now than when we started the band, and hopefully I was able to do justice to these stories and these lives in this little town that I grew up in.”
