The Killers brought their soaring desert anthem “Runaways” to the Late Show With David Letterman on Thursday (September 20). The song appears on their just-released album Battle Born and as usual, it finds the guys getting their Springsteen on. They seem to sport a new look with each album cycle, and this time around there’s a lot of dark leather, which fits the open-road grandeur of the album, and this cut in particular.
You can’t help but get caught up in the crunchy riffs, Brandon Flowers‘ edge-of-a-cliff vocals and those shimmery keys (even though the poor synthesizer player is tucked away behind the amps, he plays an integral part in this song). Dave really digs it, and you will, too. Watch it up top.
