The new song, which made its debut at last month's Mad Cool festival in Madrid, sees the band's anthemic songwriting return.



Since the release of their previous album, "Pressure Machine," the band hasn't released any new music.

The song was written prior to "Pressure Machine," according to frontman Brandon Flowers, but the themes it explores inspired him to create that album.

This was the first song written after we had to postpone the "Imploding The Mirage" tour due to the pandemic, according to Flowers.

I had recently moved back to Utah and started to make trips to Nephi, where I grew up. I discovered that the location I had longed to leave when I was 16 was now one I couldn't help going back to. My son is getting close to being the same age as I was then in my life. I wish I could reach out and tell my sons and myself not to overthink things. and to look for the “white arrows” in their lives. White arrows represent my wife, kids, my songs, and the stage for me right now.

White arrows will break the black night, so don't overthink it, boy, the song's lyrics declare.

“We’ve been teasing it a little bit,” he told NME. “It was the song that took me back home and was sort of the impetus for writing [2021 album] 'Pressure Machine'." What’s interesting is that it just didn’t make it onto the record – but its absence is not a reflection of the quality of the song. It was an aesthetic decision to keep it off the record. "

He continued: “There’s an optimism to it. It’s in the dust, it’s in the gutter, and it’s looking at the stars. It’s written in more of a new wave vehicle. "

Flowers also revealed that the band had been working on their next album – with material to be released later this year.

“We just had a few days off and Stuart [Price, producer] came and visited us on the road,” he told NME. “We’re sending things back and forth and ideas. I’m talking with Shawn Everett [producer] too, and it’s nice to have that combo. "


He added: “You will hear singles this year." The full record will probably be released early next year, but there will definitely be more releases this year. "

Speaking to NME for a Big Read cover story last year, drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr said the band had already started work on a new “heavier” album that would see all four members reunite. Lead guitarist Dave Keuning didn’t appear on 2020’s 'Imploding the Mirage’, while bassist Mark Stoermer sat out recording sessions for 'Pressure Machine’.

“It’s a little bit more canyon rock,” Flowers said of the songs they were working on for their next record. “Maybe a little bit more traditional Killers, I guess.” Vannucci added that he was expecting something “a bit heavier and more clench-fisted” than "Pressure Machine". “I could see us going in that direction: something a bit more energised.”
