The Killers have released new single “boy,” the track is out today via Island Records, and was written by frontman Brandon Flowers. The band debuted the track at last month’s Mad Cool Festival in Madrid. The song was written before Pressure Machine and, says Flowers, the themes explored in the lyrics actually led him on the path to writing and recording that album.

Flowers elaborates,“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, the track’s release comes ahead of the band’s North American stadium and arena tour – the biggest of their career to date – which kicks off in Vancouver at Rogers Arena on August 19th.
