The Killers have shared their U2-indebted second single “My Own Soul’s Warning” from their upcoming album Imploding The Mirage. “My Own Soul’s Warning” is anthemic to say the least. It might be a little too anthemic at 9 in the morning but that’s just me. Perhaps you prefer music that gets your blood pumping, me? I like to wake up slow and easy. Ah, the life of a geriatric is the life for me.
The artwork for “My Own Soul’s Warning” is a painting by the artist Thomas Blackshear, who also painted the piece the band is using for Imploding The Mirage’s cover art. As a companion to LP sleeve, the artwork for “My Own Soul’s Warning”is one from a series of Blackshear works depicting the Crow Tribe of Indians, who gave the band their blessing to use the painting, saying in a letter that “Artists living across the world inspired by our people and way of life, is a total honour and true testament of the knowledge our people share. During this unprecedented time due to the COVID-19 Pandemic as well as the injustice of police brutality protests around the world. Our people recognise the need to also help keep our spirits positive.”
The Killers also recently released replacement dates for their unavoidably postponed UK and Ireland 2020 stadium tour, with rescheduled dates for all original shows now taking place in May/June next year.
