Watch The Killers Debut a New Track and Cover Interpol

Last night in Windsor, Ontario, The Killers dropped the first hints that new music is forthcoming. Frontman Brandon Flowers, while showered in foggy spotlight, debuted a solo piano track that features all our favorite Killers’ touchstones: anthemic piano chords, Flowers’ distinct vocals, and melancholy lyrics.

“Have all the songs been written? / I just need one more to get through to you. I can’t take back what I’ve done wrong / I just need one more song.”

The apologetic ballad is short, clocking in at just less than two minutes. Time will tell if the yet-unnamed track—going out on a limb and guessing it’s called “One More Song”—will herald a new full-length. The Las Vegas band’s last new LP was 2012’s Battle Born. Direct Hits, The Killers’ greatest hits album, was later released in 2013. Check out below the fan-filmed footage via Can It Be the Way It Was on Tumblr.

As Spin reports, The Killers also covered a song by one of their biggest inspirations last night. “There were a couple of bands that really sort of lit a fire under us when we were first starting,” Flowers told the crowd, “and one of those bands was Interpol.” Flowers and Co. then launched into “Obstacle 1,” a track from Interpol’s 2002 record, Turn on the Bright Lights, turning in a vitalizing rendition of the New York band’s classic. Check it out below:

Hopefully we get more new Killers music in the coming months. Until then, let us know what you think of this new track and cover in the comments below.
