Following the success of their huge single, Caution, The Killers have shared another new song — entitled “My Own Soul’s Warning” — taken from their forthcoming album, Imploding The Mirage.
The Killers also recently announced they will play their unavoidably postponed gigs at Malahide Castle with Sam Fender on June 15 and 16 in 2021. The tour, the band’s biggest ever, sold out in hours when initial dates went on sale late last year, but fans have been assured that all tickets held for the original dates will be honored and are transferable to the corresponding 2021 show.
The artwork for “My Own Soul’s Warning” is a painting by the artist Thomas Blackshear, who also painted the piece the band is using for Imploding The Mirage’s cover art.
As a companion to LP sleeve, the artwork for “My Own Soul’s Warning” is one from a series of Blackshear works depicting the Crow Tribe of Indians, who gave the band their blessing to use the painting, saying in a letter that “Artists living across the world inspired by our people and way of life, is a total honour and true testament of the knowledge our people share. During this unprecedented time due to the COVID-19 Pandemic as well as the injustice of police brutality protests around the world. Our people recognise the need to also help keep our spirits positive.”
Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally.
Imploding The Mirage is The Killers’ sixth studio album and the follow up to 2017’s chart topping Wonderful Wonderful. Recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, Utah, it is the first Killers album to be written and recorded since the band left their hometown of Las Vegas and it features a brilliant array of collaborators, another first for the group, who have typically kept guest spots on their albums to a minimum. The list of featured artists includes Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel, Blake Mills, and Lucius.
