The Killers have teamed up with Bruce Springsteen on their new single “Dustland.”
This collaboration with the Boss is an update of the Killers’ amotional 2008 Day & Age track, “A Dustland Fairytale.” The track is reportedly one of Springsteen’s favourite tracks by the Killers, and frontman Brendan Flowers explains that he wrote it in the middle of his mom’s battle with cancer.
“It was an attempt to better understand my dad, who is sometimes a mystery to me,” Flowers writes on social media. “To acknowledge their sacrifices and maybe even catch a glimpse of just how strong love needs to be to make it in this world. It was my therapy. It was cathartic.”
