The Killers and Bruce Springsteen have teamed up on a new song titled “Dustland”. “Dustland” is a remake of The Killers’ 2008 song “A Dustland Fairytale,” which appeared on the group’s album Day & Age. You can pre-save the song: here.
In an Instagram post, The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers recalled how Springsteen texted him about working together in February 2020. Flowers said he wrote “A Dustland Fairytale” during his late mom’s battle with cancer, writing: “It was an attempt to better understand my dad, who is sometimes a mystery to me. To grieve for my mother. 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….I’m grateful to him for opening this door for me. I’m grateful to my parents for their example to me. Now go find something new out about your dad, give your mom a big hug, and for god’s sake listen to Bruce Springsteen.”
The Killers released their sixth studio album, Imploding the Mirage, in August. 71-year-old Springsteen released his 20th album, Letter to You, in October.
