When you think of The Killers, you expect bombast, grandiose compositions with earnest lyrics and fist-pumping theatrics — and that’s very much what the group delivered with its new single, “My Own Soul’s Warning.”

The song, premiered on Wednesday, comes off the upcoming album Imploding the Mirage, which has been previewed a bit in recent weeks.

Musically, “My Own Soul’s Warning” has a bit of a vibe to it that calls to mind indie/rock breakouts such as The War on Drugs and Tame Impala, while also retaining that vintage Killers sound. In other words, it’s an anthem:

The art accompanying the song comes from artist Thomas Blackshear, who painted the album’s artwork, as well. Per a press release, 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.” 

“My Own Soul’s Warning” joins “Fire in Bone,” another song released in recent weeks:

And “Caution,” a the album’s lead single, featuring a slick guitar solo from Lindsey Buckingham:

Imploding the Mirage was to be released on May 29, but had its release date pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When released, it will be the Killers’ sixth full-length record.
