The Killers have released a new single called “Boy.”
The track, which the “Mr. Brightside” outfit first debuted live in July during their European tour, follows the band’s one-two punch of 2020’s Imploding the Mirage and 2021’s Pressure Machine albums.
“This was the first song written after we had to cancel the Imploding the Mirage tour due to the pandemic,” frontman Brandon Flowers says of “Boy.” “I had recently moved back to Utah and started to make trips to Nephi, where I grew up. I found that the place I had wanted to get away from so desperately at 16 was now a place that I couldn’t stop returning to.”
“I have a son approaching the age I was at that time in my life,” he continues. “With ‘Boy,’ I want to reach out and tell myself — and my sons — to not overthink it. And to look for the ‘white arrows’ in their lives. For me now, white arrows are my wife, children, my songs and the stage.”
The Killers will launch a North American headlining tour August 19 in Vancouver.
