The Killers have released a brand new song called “Your Side of Town” through their label Island Records. Written by frontman Brandon Flowers, and the track was produced by The Killers, alongside Stuart Price and Shawn Everett. Stream the official audio for the all-new “Your Side of Town” below now.

The group’s new single is their first new piece of material since they revealed “boy” last year. The song was written before Pressure Machine and, Flowers confirms, the themes explored in the lyrics actually led him on the path to writing and recording that album.

“This was the first song written after we had to cancel the Imploding The Mirage Tour due to the pandemic,” Flowers elaborates. “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.”

Tomorrow and Saturday, The Killers are headlining the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK. After that, the band has more headlining slots lined up at Sea Hear Now in New Jersey, Bourbon & Beyond in Kentucky, Ohana Festival in California, Life Is Beautiful in their hometown of Las Vegas, and a special performance at the Formula1 Austin Grand Prix. The band also has a few single headlining concerts lined up before their touring schedule concludes at the end of September.

The Killers released their sixth studio album Imploding The Mirage back in August of 2020. Despite having to cancel the supporting tour, the album performed well. It peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart. With live music at a standstill, the band uncharacteristically wasted no time getting to work on the follow-up. The result was Pressure Machine, which arrived almost exactly a year later to the day on August 13, 2021, and once again gave the group the top spot on the Rock Albums chart.

The band’s massive Imploding the Mirage Tour wrapped up last October.
