In a couple of months, the Killers will return with Battle Born, their first new album in nearly four years. And today, we get to hear “Runaways,” the stormy and anthemic lead single. Really, this song has just about everything the Killers were ever famous for: The big-room synthpop largesse, the Sprinsteenian belt-it-out chorus, the transcendently dumb chorus. If you have the slightest bit of affection for the Killers, you will probably love it. I do, and it’s great. Listen below.
Battle Born is out 9/17.
