Dave Keuning may have reunited with The Killers for their upcoming seventh album, but that doesn't mean he's abandoned his solo career. On Thursday (April 22), the guitarist announced A Mild Case Of Everything, his sophomore album under the moniker Keuning, and shared three tracks off it: "The Ends Of The Earth," Bad Instincts" and "No One Is Calling You A Liar."
The new music sees Keuning's solo songwriting blossom, taking sounds from his debut album Prismism and expanding them into even bigger, more cinematic soundscapes.
“I wrote and recorded this album throughout 2020, I am really proud of the music, and I think it is my best work,” Keuning reflected in a press release. “I felt more comfortable as a singer this time and also had a lot of fun with the guitar. I also took some chances on some short songs, long songs and did whatever I felt like. ‘Don't Poke the Bear’ is a 9-minute song I wrote in the middle of the night and just kept adding parts to it until 5 in the morning. I tried to have fun but I also have moments lyrically I am proud of.”
A Mild Case Of Everything is slated for a June 25 release and can be preordered here. Listen to "The Ends Of The Earth," "Bad Instincts" and "No One Is Calling You A Liar" below.
