The Killers – Runaways

Remember when I was psyched out of my mind about “Battle Born,” the upcoming Killers album? Their new single “Runaways” was released today. In short: I’m still psyched out of my mind. Check it out:

The Killers – “Runaways”

It’s a little less Killers and a little more Brandon Flowers’ solo, which is still fantastic. If this single sets the tone for the rest of the album, that’s fine. The biggest difference between the Killers and Flowers’ solo is that The Killers has more of a pop friendly sound. They have radio ready hits and those influences are apparent in “Runaways,” too. I’d really like some classic Killers and I think that’s what most fans are looking for, although we’d really take anything at this point. Another album like “Sawdust” would actually be the best. It would be like waking up on Christmas morning to a Red Ryder BB gun.

All the fun minus shooting your eye out!
