The Killers have announced their new album, Wonderful Wonderful. It's Brandon Flowers and company's first record since 2012's Battle Born. The release date for the new album has not yet been revealed, however, the band did share the LP's lead single "The Man".
The song premiered on Annie Mac's BBC 1 Radio show yesterday. Flowers said Bowie-inspired arena style dance anthem is "looking back on his younger self, the ‘Brandon Flowers' persona from their Grammy-nominated debut Hot Fuss, and reconciling that wide-eyed character with the man he is now."
Meanwhile the band debuted another new track, "Run for Cover", at a show in Atlantic City, New Jersey a few days ago. Brandon Flowers told Mac that they worked on the new album with producers Jacknife Lee and Stuart Price. Recording for the album took place in Las Vegas, Nevada and Los Angeles, California.
