What Will The Killers' new album sound like?

Ronnie Vannucci Jr. told the Sarah Hagan Backstage podcast that it is more like a "concept album" and is very different from what we'd expect from the band.

Talking about how many of the "orphaned" songs from their sixth album, will not actually be featured on the seventh, he added: “Weirdly enough we have this stockpile of songs that were sort of orphaned off the last record, but we're saving that for the next record."

The Mr. Brightside rocker added: "We instead made another record, which is quite a bit of a concept record and very different from the normal Killers stuff.

"So we still have that stockpile left, and we’re still writing more. So, it’s always good to have a few songs – or an album, even – lying around".

What's the tracklist of The Killers' new album?

There's no tracklisting for the band's seventh studio album just yet, but watch this space.
