LISTEN: The Killers Return With Funky New Single ‘The Man’
The Killers are back with their first new album material in five years – since their 2012 album Battle Born. The band has shared a brand new song titled "The Man," which is the lead single from their upcoming fourth studio album Wonderful Wonderful, which the guys are in the midst of recording.
"The Man" is a different sound from what we've heard in the past from The Killers. The song hears lead singer Brandon Flowers's signature vocals atop of a very funky rhythm, which during a U.K. radio interview he says is "funkier than anything [they’ve] ever done before."
The Killers recorded "The Man" with producer Jacknife Lee during album sessions in Las Vegas (their hometown) and Los Angeles. The song is retrospective, and about Brandon Flowers looking back on a younger version of himself compared to "The Man" he is today. "Don't need no advice, I got a plan/I know the direction, the lay of the land," he sings.
According to a press release, it sounds like fans have a lot to look forward to, as the band's new album Wonderful Wonderful is being described as "their most sonically forward thinking record yet; an LP bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-filling anthems that make The Killers one of the world's biggest and most beloved rock bands."
