The Killers have a new single out, and “Caution” packs enough of a punch to appeal to those who enjoyed the band‘s earlier hits, like “When You Were Young” or “Somebody Told Me.” The dramatic, anthemic new song is a preview of the band’s new record, and features a scorching guitar solo from Lindsey Buckingham.
With everybody stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic these days, a photo taken during Buckingham’s studio time with the massively successful band showed up on Instagram, courtesy of photographer Rob Loud, complete with the timely caption of “a different kind of quarantine.”
Buckingham shared the image himself on his own Instagram page accordingly:
The pairing of Lindsey Buckingham, he of the esteemed career both as a guitarist/principal member of Fleetwood Mac and an accomplished solo artist, with the Killers is a powerhouse combination, and the song captures the convergence well.
“Caution” received an artsy music video treatment earlier this week, as part of a longer film project from the band and director Sing Lee:
“Caution” is the first preview of Imploding the Mirage, a new album from the Killers which is scheduled to be released on May 29. More on the record, via a news release:
Imploding The Mirage is The Killers’ sixth studio album and the follow up to 2017’s chart topping Wonderful Wonderful. Produced by the band in conjunction with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen, the album was 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 also 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.
