ABC/Randy HolmesThe Killers have released a new song titled “Some Kind of Love,” which appears on the band’s forthcoming album, Wonderful Wonderful. The personal, ethereal track, which is based on a chord progression written by ambient music pioneer Brian Eno, is available for digital download now.
As frontman Brandon Flowers tells Rolling Stone, “Some Kind of Love” was written for his wife, who’s struggled with PTSD throughout her life due to childhood trauma.
“Typically, for women who have had problems in their youth, it really manifests itself when they’re in their 30s,” Flowers explains. “Over the last few years, it has become a big part of our life. Some of the things I’ve tackled on this record are because of that, and ‘Some Kind of Love’ is one of those songs.”
Wonderful Wonderful, which features the lead single “The Man,” will be released September 22. The Killers will launch a North American tour in support of the album in January.
