A couple of weeks ago, the Killers smashed the universe upside the head with “Runaways,” their new and refreshingly gigantic single, a ridiculous song that gets better every time I hear it. It’s the sound of a band figuring out everything that anyone ever liked them for in the first place. And now we get the widescreen-scope video for the song, which keeps things relatively simple. It shows the band bashing away under a mythic American desert sky and on a ledge overlooking their Las Vegas hometown. Warren Fu directs and does a nice job making the Killers look like the biggest band in the world. Watch it below.

The Killers’ new album Battle Born is out Island/Vertigo. Here’s the cover:
