The Killers Leak List of Potential Song Titles for Upcoming Album
It looks like the Killers have an album's worth of songs ready to go for their upcoming effort. On Tuesday (Oct. 8), the band shared an image of a handwritten song list cataloging 13 new track titles.
That is, the titles themselves are ready to go, at least. The Brandon Flowers-led act have been hard at work on a follow-up to 2017's Wonderful Wonderful since this spring, when a different batch of song titles was first shared. This time around, however, selections bearing names such as "Blowback," "Party People" and "Dying Breed" are making the scene. See the Killers' recent song list down toward the bottom of this post.
Indeed, the potential track listing may supersede the band's narrow glimpse at track titles from April. At that time, the group shared that "progress abounds" on their imminent sixth studio album. The outfit's frontman also revealed they were working on the new album in Utah, a place where Flowers said he "fell in love with music for the first time."
"We've been at it for a few months," the Killers singer told the NME earlier this year. "The idea is to try and get something that we're excited about — maybe about one song a week. So far, we've hit that target and the list is growing. We'll take inventory here soon and see what we've got."
It certainly appears Tuesday's list represents an inventory of fresh rockers. Interestingly enough, all 13 of the scrawled titles differ from those of the ones the Killers brandished back in April.
Last month, Flowers joined other musicians in paying tribute to late the Cars mastermind Ric Ocasek. Flowers inducted the Cars into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Previously, the Killers covered the Alarm, collaborated with Elton John and stood up against Trump.
