The Killers release new single, "Boy".  Listen with lyrics and translation

The Killers released the new song, “Boy”, this Friday (5). This is the band’s new single, not yet confirmed for their next album, which should be released only next year.

Vocalist Brandon Flowers talked about the meaning of “Boy”. “This was the first song written after we had to cancel the “Imploding The Mirage” tour due to the pandemic”, he recalls.

Brandon says the song’s inspiration came from his return to his home state and visits to his hometown. “I recently returned to Utah and started taking trips to Nephi, where I grew up. I discovered that the place I so desperately wanted to get away from at age 16 was now a place I couldn’t stop returning to. I have a son who approaches the age I was at that time in my life. With “Boy”, I want to reach out and tell myself – and my children – not to overthink it. And look for the “white arrows” in their lives. For me now , the white arrows are my wife, children, my songs and the stage”.

Listen to “Boy” with the lyrics and translation below:

“Boy”

head down
Wrong fit
big deal
That’s just growing up
untouched
sixteen
Don’t overthink it, boy
White arrows will break the black night
But don’t overthink it, boy

And when you’re out on the ledge
Please come down boy
There is a place that exists
Just give it some time
Drawn arrows unseen will fly

heatwave
slow lane
small town
Only diesels dance
These streets
Weren’t meant to house
Jet-fueled engine dreams
White arrows will blast the black night

And when you’re out on the ledge
Please come down boy
There is a place that exists
Just give it some time
Home drawn arrows unseen will fly
And break the black night
But don’t overthink it, boy

“Boy”

Head down
wrong fit
Big Deal
That’s just growing up
Untouched
Sixteen years
Don’t think too much boy
White arrows will break the black night
But don’t think too much boy

And when you’re on the edge
Please come down boy
There is a place that exists
just take a break
Invisible drawn arrows will fly

Heat wave
slow track
Small town
Only diesels dance
these streets
were not made to house
Dreams of jet engines
White arrows will blast the black night

And when you’re on the edge
Please come down boy
There is a place that exists
just take a break
Invisible home drawn arrows will fly
And break the black night
But don’t think too much boy
