Last week (December 8), the band shared a euphoric and trancey new song called ‘Spirit’ – the last song to appear on their new greatest hits album, ‘Rebel Diamonds‘, which was also released last week.

The album celebrates their 20-year career, including classics such as ‘Mr Brightside‘, ‘When You Were Young’ and ‘Human’ to more recent standalone hits such as ‘Boy‘ and ‘Your Side Of Town‘.

In their career, The Killers have released several albums including their seminal debut, ‘Hot Fuss‘ (2004), ‘Sam’s Town’ (2006), ‘Day and Age’ (2008) ‘Battle Born’ (2012), ‘Don’t Waste Your Wishes‘ (2016), ‘Wonderful Wonderful‘ (2017), the five-star ‘Imploding The Mirage‘ (2020) and their most recent effort, ‘Pressure Machine‘ (2021).

In a trailer for the album, frontman Flowers can be heard saying: “See it’s been said that what’s remembered lives, and we’ve racked up stadiums full of memories the past twenty years, enough to fill lifetimes. Twenty songs for twenty years.”

Recently, The Killers also said that they scrapped their planned new album because it didn’t feel “authentic”.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper frontman Brandon Flowers and co said the new sound “just didn’t feel right” and they decided to stop making the album they’d planned.

He told the newspaper: “It just didn’t feel authentic. It felt like we were forcing something. We love synth music, it’s a part of our DNA and there’s been great contributions from us in that genre. And man, we love New Order and Depeche Mode, so it’s not a slight. It just doesn’t feel right for us at this moment.”
