The Killers have revealed the new release date for their upcoming album Imploding the Mirage, which was originally slated for release on May 29 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The LP will arrive on August 21 via Island. The band accompanied the announcement with a new music video for single ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’, which you can watch below.
“COVID-19 monkey wrenched us,” the band wrote on social media. “But we preserved. Folks, mark your calendars.”
Imploding the Mirage was co-produced by Shawn Everett and Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado and recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, Utah. It features guest appearances from the likes of Lindsey Buckingham, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel of The War On Drugs, Blake Mills, and more. ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’ is the most recent single from the album, following ‘Caution’ and ‘Fire in Bone’.
The Killers also announced they will be postponing all their remaining tour dates across America and Australia. “As so many of us have come to realise during the Covid-19 pandemic, the idea that we would be returning to ‘normal’ is farther along in the future than we initially thought,” the band wrote.
They added: “The safety of our fans and families is of the utmost importance to us always. We want nothing more to hit the road and play these songs for you and when the time is right, we will do just that! Be safe and be healthy. We appreciate you.”
