'My Own Soul's Warning': The Killers drop stunning track from 'Imploding the Mirage' LP and fans are loving it
The track is taken from their upcoming sixth studio album 'Imploding the Mirage', which was originally set for a release on May 29 but has been rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic
Las Vegas-based alternative/indie rock group The Killers have released their new single ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’ on Tuesday, June 16. The Killers had shared a preview of the new song on June 13, which was accompanied by black and white visuals of the band in the studio, directed by Wes Johnson. The track is taken from their upcoming sixth studio album 'Imploding the Mirage'. The LP was originally set for a release on May 29 but has been rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There is no new official release date confirmed at present.
Talking about the album in an interview with the Rolling Stone, Brandon Flowers had said, “A lot of moments [making this album] reminded me of making our first album, where you just know that it’s going to connect because of the way it makes you feel. I felt like that 20-year-old kid almost inventing something again.”
'My Own Soul's Warning' opens in echoed atmospherics as Flowers sings, "I tried going against my own soul's warning. But in the end, something just didn't feel right. Oh I tried diving even though the sky was storming. I just wanted to get back to where you are." The intro then bursts into a driving beat with bright guitars and synth strings. Fans on Twitter are loving the new track. "100% Love it!" said a fan while another wrote, "No complaints on my end. ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’ is brilliant." One fan said, "Bloody hell what a song." Fans are also enjoying the dreamy tone of the song and already imagining it performed live, saying, "Wow! I can totally see this growing into something monumental live, much like Runaways" and "Just dropped. Caution was good, but this track smashes it out of the park.... if you are TK fan, just close your eyes, sit back and imagine it live*.... *not if you’re driving."
The Killers featured on Monday's episode of 'The Ellen Degeneres Show', remotely performing a surging rendition of 'Caution', another single which features on 'Imploding the Mirage'. Last week on June 8, the group performed a new version of ‘Land Of The Free’, changing the lyrics to reference the killing of George Floyd. The 49-year-old died while being arrested by police in Minneapolis on May 25 when an officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
‘My Own Soul’s Warning’ is available to stream/download now.
