THE KILLERS release brilliant new video for “The Man”

I’m a huge fan of The Killers and love their fantastic new single “The Man.” I also have a significant man-crush on band front man Brandon Flowers, but I digress… The single, the first from their upcoming fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful, is also the first non-Christmas song to be released by The Killers in five years. (They released a greatest hits album Direct Hits in 2013 and Flowers released a solo album The Desired Effect in 2015.)

The band released their brilliant new video for “The Man” today,  June 28. Directed by Tim Mattia, the video shows Flowers cavorting about Las Vegas (where the band is from) as a number of characters who all think very highly of themselves: a player in a tuxedo, a lounge lizard in a gold lamé suit who’s not impressing the few watching him perform, a down on his luck gambler who bets it all and loses, a guy pumping iron outside his trailer in the desert who heads to the casino and sings karaoke, trying to impress the ladies, and an Evel Knievel wannabe. It’s great fun!
