The Killers Set Release Date For 'Battle Born'
The Killers have announced that their new studio album "Battle Born" will be released on September 17. It is the Las Vegas band's fourth record and will be preceded by a single titled "Runaways". A series of producers worked on the album, including Madonna collaborator Stuart Price, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor and Brendan O'Brien. It is the band's first album for over four years. Songs confirmed to appear on the album include "Heart Of A Girl", "FLesh And Bone" and "Carry Me Home", with the tracklisting set to be confirmed in the coming weeks. You can watch the trailer for "Battle Born" below. Last month, singer Brandon Flowers explained the title of the album, which is also the name of the band's studio and a nickname for their home state of Nevada, saying: "In a sense, all Americans are battle born. Our ancestors came here for something better." Drummer Ronnie Vanucci added: "It's living up to its title. This is our difficult fourth record." The Killers will make their UK live return at V Festival in August, headlining alongside The Stone Roses. Meanwhile, The Killers have unveiled their brand new single, "Runaways". The track received its first official play on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show and is now available to listen to online. Scroll down to hear the track, which is a typically epic offering from the Las Vegas band, a heartland electro rocker complete with soaring chorus. Speaking to Lowe, Killers frontman Brandon Flowers admitted that he checks online to see what the reaction to his songs is like. Of "Runaways", which had leaked earlier, he said: "I'm guilty of checking, seeing what the scoop is. I want people to like it, so I'm kind of curious as to what the reaction is." He added that he was confident that the song would go down well with fans, saying: "I've always felt good about this song. It's exciting to think that we're gonna be playing again we want people to hear this new stuff." Check out the trailer for "Battle Born" below:
