The Killers New Album Delayed, Song Released



American rock band The Killers were set to release their sixth studio album titled ‘Imploding the Mirage’ on May 29th, 2020. It was scheduled to be released via Island Records, but has now been delayed due to the novel coronavirus spreading all over the world. The band had also been slated to head out on the road for a tour in support of their new album and a show had been scheduled to take place at the Emirates Stadium in London. However, the ticket sales had been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it will not happen before 2021. 
The band had released their lead single titled ‘Caution’ on 13th March, 2020, featuring Lindsey Buckingham. The follow-up album to Wonderful Wonderful that was released in 2017, Imploding the Mirage features K.D. Lang, Buckingham, Weyes Blood, War on Drugs’ Adam Granducil, Lucius and Blake Mills. After the Caution video’s release in March, group members Brandon Flowers and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. had performed the song’s stripped-down version in a bathroom for the daily Quarantine Minilogue Friday on the Jimmy Kimmel show.

The second single from the album titled ‘Fire in Bone’ was released on April 24th, 2020. It is a quirky and funky track and highlights the need for people to appreciate those who are around to pick up the pieces, especially in these times. The new album was produced by Foxygen’s Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado. The new record had been formally announced by the band on 15th November, 2019. Frontman Brandon Flowers stated that the band had gone to Utah for recording the album because that’s where he had first fallen in love with music. The cover of the album is ‘Dance of the Wind and Storm’ made by American artist Thomas Blackshear. 
Recording of Imploding the Mirage took place in a number of locations, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Park City, Utah. There are a total of 10 tracks in the album. Another important thing to know about this album by The Killers is that it is the first album that they have made without guitarist Dave Keuning. He was the one to start the band back in 2001 when he had put up an ad in a Las Vegas newspaper for musicians to play with. ‘Mr. Brightside’ had been the first song he had written with frontman Brandon Flowers and had had a pivotal role in all albums of the band.
