The Killers have released the studio version of "Boy," a song they they played at multiple European festivals last month.
Frontman Brandon Flowers says they wrote the song before last year's Pressure Machine. "This was the first song written after we had to cancel the Imploding the Mirage tour due to the pandemic. I had recently moved back to Utah and started to make trips to Nephi, where I grew up. I found that the place I had wanted to get away from so desperately at 16 was now a place that I couldn’t stop returning to. I have a son approaching the age I was at that time in my life. With 'Boy,' I want to reach out and tell myself -- and my sons -- to not overthink it."
The Killers will kick off their North American tour August 19th in Vancouver with a show in Denver August 31st.
