The Killers Return with Political New Single "Land of the Free"
Published Jan 14, 2019Following their 2017 album Wonderful Wonderful, the Killers offered up a 10 year anniversary reissue of Day & Age. Fortunately, however, they're not just looking back, as they have a brand new single.
"Land of the Free" is a decidedly political song from the band, offering critiques of America's gun problem and its for-profit prison system. Those lyrics are set to a slow-building anthem that includes slapping drums and a full gospel choir. It's an emotive power ballad from the kings of emotive power ballads.
The song also has a music video, which was directed by none other than Spike Lee. You can watch it below.
In a statement on Instagram, the Killers' Brandon Flowers explained the following of the new song:
