The Killers have just released a politically-charged new single “Land Of The Free”. The track was released with a poignant video directed by Academy Award-winner Spike Lee.
The track attacks Trump’s stance on immigration. As well as tackling themes of institutionalized racism and gun control within the United States.
“Down at the border/They’re gonna put up a wall/With concrete and rebar steel beams/High enough to keep all those filthy hands off of our hopes and our dreams/People who just want the same thing we do/In the land of the free”
The band have released a statement unpacking the writing process behind the track. Sharing “We dishonour our values, our ancestors and our heritage when we tear gas our brothers and sisters seeking asylum. I see my family in the faces of these vulnerable people.” Read the full statement below:
