Never before have The Killers taken so much time for an album as this time. A whole five years have passed since "Battle Born". All the more reason to be happy about "Wonderful Wonderful" in 2017.
This is now the fifth studio album by Brandon Flowers and Co. 10 songs have been composed and written by the indie rockers in their own Battle Born Studios and in houses in San Diego and Joshua Tree National Park, which they rented especially for this purpose.
All pieces were finally recorded in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Besides the killers themselves, the production was handled by three real high-caliber artists: Erol Alkan, Jacknife Lee and Stuart Price.
There are also some special guests on "Wonderful Wonderful": None other than Mark Knopfler plays in the song "Have All the Songs Been Written?" And the music for "Some Kind of Love" is by Brian Eno.
The Killers already gave the first taste of the new album in June with the funky 80th pop rock single "The Man", in which Brandon Flowers takes a look at his former self, which in the end reconciles with his present self.
In August, the second single "Run For Cover" was released, which had been lying dormant in the band's archives since 2008.
Both songs show what the band already announced, namely that "Wonderful Wonderful" reminds a bit of their early days, especially of the album "Sam's Town".
Almost a comeback album: With "Wonderful Wonderful" The Killers celebrate their return in 2017 - to the music world, the charts and to their beginnings.
