The Killers try not to overthink with new single ‘boy’

The new single was written before last year's album 'Pressure Machine'.

The Killers have shared their first new music since last year’s album ‘Pressure Machine’, new track ‘boy’.

Written before ‘Pressure Machine’, frontman Brandon Flowers explains: “This was the first song written after we had to cancel the ‘Imploding The Mirage’ tour due to the pandemic. 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. 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.”

Produced by The Killers, Stuart Price and Shawn Everett, ‘boy’ comes ahead of a North American stadium and arena tour, which kicks off later this month.
