The Killers continue to drip-feed the details of their seventh studio album.
Runaway Horses will feature a guest turn from Phoebe Bridgers, while other new songs include Sleepwalker, In The Car Outside and Desperate Things as the band took inspiration from frontman Brandon Flowers’ formative years in Utah.
“We were discussing Brandon moving to Nephi as a kid and being stuck in the middle of nowhere,” drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. said. “And during Covid-19, it started to feel like we were all in the middle of nowhere.”
“I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with. Many memories of my time in Nephi are tender,” Flowers added. “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.”
