The Killers’ shows have also seen them perform their latest single, ‘Boy’. Released on August 5 – and debuted at Mad Cool Festival 2022 back in July – the single marked the first new music from The Killers since their latest album ‘Pressure Machine’, released in 2021.
Speaking to NME ahead of the track’s release, Flowers reflected on the origins of ‘Boy’. “There’s an optimism to it,” he said. “It’s in the dust, it’s in the gutter, and it’s looking at the stars. It’s writing in more of a new wave vehicle.”
Elsewhere in the cover story feature, Flowers said he and The Killers are working on the follow-up to last year’s sixth studio offering. “You will hear singles this year,” Flowers shared. “The full record will probably be early next year, but there will definitely be more releases this year.”
