"The Man" is the lead single from The Killers' upcoming album, Wonderful Wonderful. Brandon Flowers and co. released a Christmas album last year, a greatest hits set in 2013 and their last proper studio record was 2012's Battle Born. The rock group takes cues from Flowers' '80s-inspired solo album, 2015's The Desired Effect, on "The Man."
Flowers penned "The Man" with producer Jacknife Lee, the guy behind records by Crystal Castles and Snow Patrol. The Killers' neon sound is fully immersed in disco music with funky guitar and sparkling synths backing Brandon talking himself up. "I got gas in the tank / I got money in the bank / I got news for you, baby / I'm the man," he sings before hitting his heavenly falsetto. The band goes Bee Gees and walks the walk on this swaggering dance floor stunner.
"The Man" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. No word yet on when to expect The Killers' Wonderful Wonderful album.
