Back in the heady days of 2019 when there wasn’t an overbearing new existential crisis lurking around every weekend The Killers put out a song that was unmistakably political in nature. It also felt unmistakably like a track Bruce Springsteen would have recorded in 1984. (And I mean that as high praise).
Now that 2020 is upon us and there are layers and layers and layers of crises weighing upon the collective psyche of the world The Killers went back to the studio and recorded an updated version of Land of the Free.
They’re both great.
