The evidence suggests it's not going to sound anything like we expect.
The Killers have been working hard on their new album, and it seems it may be finally complete this year.
Speaking to NME, the Las Vegas four-piece revealed the follow-up to 2012's Battle Born is "coming along," but is taking longer than expected because they want to keep things "fresh".
Here's everything we know about their fifth studio album so far:
It's almost complete
Despite there not being a release date in sight, Brandon Flowers told the outlet the LP is "nearly there".
It's not going to sound like their old material
The band are trying to change things up, and because of that, it's taking longer than expected. Drummer Ronnie Vannucci told NME:“We have a problem with taking two steps forward and one step back, so that makes it take longer. We keep asking ourselves: ‘What does a four-piece band do? How do you keep it fresh?’ It’s a constant exercise in experimentation.”
It might be uncomfortable
They're working with some of the biggest names business
It could very well include these titles:
It is "heavier" than anything they've ever done, but has "beautiful" moments
It could have a funky sound
They'll be playing some of it at their British Summer Time gig
The Smile Like You Mean It rockers will headline the Hyde Park festival on 8 July, and Vannucci told NME: “By then we’ll have some new shit for y’all.”
