Ever since The Killers released the trailer for their upcoming album Battle Born, we’ve been curious what direction their new music would take. Now, with the release of the band’s first single “Runaways” we can breathe a sigh of relief because it’s classic Killers. The song employs their signature rock guitar sound with synthesizers and the steady, powerful drumming we know and love.
In the single, Brandon Flower’s unique voice sings about two young people with no real attachment to any specific place falling in love: “Let’s take a chance baby we can’t lose? / Ain’t we all just runaways / ?I knew it when I met you / ?I’m not gonna let you? / Runaway?”
