The Killers - Land Of The Free
Watch the Spike Lee directed visuals for the Las Vegas rockers' stirring political single and read Brandon Flowers' accompanying post.
The Killers have shared their Land Of The Free single and its emotive new video.
The song takes aim at Donald Trump's America and holds a strongly anti-Mexican wall message.
Listen to the track and see its Spike Lee directed video above.
Taking to Twitter, Brandon Flowers doubled down on his message, writing: "On December 14 2012, I woke up, unlocked my phone, and, like so many others, saw the pleas to "Pray for Sandy Hook". The news was devastating."
The Killers frontman continued: "If there was a single moment that I mentally began to assemble "Land of the Free," that was it. In the months and years that followed, America would be hit with an onslaught of more mass shootings of innocents and too many examples of racial injustice to ignore."
See his full post below:
The Las Vegas rocker concluded: "I love my country. I know that these are complicated issue but whether you stand to the left, right, or straddle the line, you've gotta believe that we can do better.
Land of the Free is the first official new music to be released since The Killers' 2017 Wonderful Wonderful album, and according to a recent interview we may not get a follow-up till next year.
Asked when when we could expect a sixth record from the Las Vegas rockers by Zane Lowe on Beats 1, the frontman replied:"In a perfect world, I could see the end of the year having something, but I think it's probably, it's looking more likely that it would be early 2020."
