NEW MUSIC: THE KILLERS | DUSTLAND (FEATURING BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN)
The Killers teamed up with American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen to release a new song, “Dustland”. The song is re-recorded in the band's “A Dustland Fairytale,” which was released in 2008 from their fourth studio album, “Day & Age. Brandon Flowers, the frontman of The Killers, told Rolling Stone that Springsteen has greatly influenced him as a musician and that's why he wanted to collaborate with "The Boss." “I attribute my discovery and absorption of his music with helping me become a more authentic writer,” he continues. “He helped me to see the extraordinary in everyday people and their lives. And in this case, it was my parents who were under the microscope. Their faith and doubts, their search for salvation in the desert. It sounds Biblical. It also sounds Springsteenian.” The new track was originally written in the middle of his mother’s illness with brain cancer to understand better flowers; dad, which is sometimes a mystery to him. The Killers band's biggest hits include "Mr. Brightside" and "When You Were Young," said the collaboration came about right at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic when he got a text from Springsteen.
