The Killers have announced a new single, the Las Vegas band’s first since they put out the one-off single “boy” last year. WMMR will debut the song this Friday.
They posted on their social accounts: “Hello everyone, With much excitement we present you with Your Side of Town. It’s got the ghosts of a lot of the synth music that inspired us over the years. And yet, somehow, feels completely our own. Now it’s yours! Turn it up.”
“Your Side of Town” is now available to pre-save across streaming platforms. We’ll get the entire track this Friday, August 25th. It looks like we’ll get a stunning visual to go with it, judging by this clip that they posted showing a mysterious performer in a black-and-white traffic tunnel.

If the group is on point with their description of a synth-heavy sound, we can expect the new song to draw influence from the Cars, a band that Killers frontman Brandon Flowers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. Pierre Robert was on site for the induction ceremony.
There’s no word yet on if a full album from the Killers is on the horizon, but we do know they’ve been tapped as potential halftime performers for Super Bowl LVIII.
