Video of the Moment #2919: The Killers

It’s been a spell since we’ve had new music from The Killers. ‘Wonderful Wonderful’, the Las Vegas band’s fifth album, made its debut in autumn 2017. Brandon Flowers and co.’s latest offering is wholly welcome while sadly unsurprising, given the political turmoil America has been going through in the last few years. The words in the title of this one-off song from the Killers, ‘Land of the Free’, is of course taken from our national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’. To drive home Flowers’ primary point in this song, that the meaning of our freedom, as far as we understood it as children learning our national anthem, has been impinged on, the promo video was filmed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Spike Lee at the American / Mexican border. Watch the video for ‘Land of the Free’ below. For more on TGTF on The Killers, go here.
