The Killers brought a triumvirate of news Friday as the Las Vegas rockers detailed their new LP Wonderful Wonderful, released their new single “Run for Cover” and announced a 2018 North American tour.
On the album front, Brandon Flowers and company set a September 22nd release date for Wonderful, Wonderful, the band’s first LP since 2012’s Battle Born. The album, produced by Jacknife Lee, features 10 songs – including first single “The Man” – as well as three “deluxe edition bonus tracks.” The album, which also boasts Anton Corbijn-shot cover art, is available to pre-order now in a variety of formats.
The Killers also offered up Wonderful Wonderful‘s second single “Run for Cover,” a glossy, buoyant track that proves the band hasn’t strayed from their textbook sound during the half-decade hiatus between albums. Fans who pre-orderWonderful Wonderful will receive “Run for Cover” as an instant download; the single is also available on digital music services.
With the Killers scheduled to headline Lollapalooza Friday night, the band also plotted a 2018 North American tour, their first full trek here since 2013. The 18-date jaunt launches January 5th in Toronto and wraps a month later in Salt Lake City on February 6th.
Tickets for the tour go on sale August 11th; for a limited time, a free copy of Wonderful Wonderful will accompany each ticket purchase for the trek.
Finally, the Killers will perform “The Man” live from the Las Vegas Strip outside Caesars Palace on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
