The Killers - Runaways

I've been obsessed with this song since it came out a few weeks ago.  The Killers have been a favorite of mine dating back to their debut in 2004.  After all of the various stages that the band has gone through, Hot Fuss is still my favorite Killers record.  That's not to say that their other albums are weak, for they're not.  I even enjoy Day & Age, which is much more than some people care to say.  Hey, the feather shoulder pads were genius.

"Runaways" is probably most similar to the band's sound during their Sam's Town era.  It's stadium sized and has that Springsteen feeling.  The music video was just released today and it sets the scene for the album's imagery and overall direction. There's a red and black color scheme and the hint of Las Vegas is still there.  Check out the video and look for The Killers upcoming album, Battle Born, September 18 on Island/Vertigo.
