The Killers and Bruce Springsteen Join Forces on New Song ‘Dustland’

    The Killers and Bruce Springsteen have teamed up for a new song called ‘Dustland’. It’s a new version of the band’s 2008 single ‘A Dustland Fairytale’, from the album Day & Age. Check it out below.

    Frontman Brandon Flowers told Rolling Stone that the original plan was to play the song together live. “But the idea to record it remotely was initially about giving people something during quarantine,” he said. “‘Dustland’’s lineage leads straight to Bruce. When we finished it back in 2008, I sent him a copy and a note expressing my gratitude for his contribution to my life.”

    He added: “I attribute my discovery and absorption of his music with helping me become a more authentic writer. He helped me to see the extraordinary in everyday people and their lives. And in this case, it was my parents who were under the microscope. Their faith and doubts, their search for salvation in the desert. It sounds Biblical. It also sounds Springsteenian.”

    The Killers’ most recent album Imploding the Mirage arrived last year.
