The Killers have officially released their new single “boy,” which they initially debuted during their headlining set at Madrid’s Mad Cool in July. Take a listen below.
“boy” marks The Killers’ first new music since 2021’s Pressure Machine, but as lead singer Brandon Flowers explained in an interview with Consequence, the track actually originated from the sessions for that album. However, since it didn’t fit within their vision for the LP, they decided to stash it and debut it live at a festival instead.
“We love an incline, we like a vertical. We accept all challenges,” Ronnie Vannucci Jr. added. “It’s an unusual place to maybe break open a new song, in front of maybe an entire crowd that isn’t entirely composed of Killers fan, so it kind of makes us work a little extra hard at it.”
Later this month, The Killers will kick off their extensive North America arena tour in Vancouver, which will include stops in cities like Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Toronto, New York City, and more before wrapping in DC on October 10th. Grab your seats via Ticketmaster.
