The Killers had a special surprise in store for the crowd at their headlining Mad Cool Festival set on Thursday (July 7). During their performance, the band debuted a new song called "Boy."

Before the set, Brandon Flowers spoke to NME about the track. “It was the song that took me back home and was sort of the impetus for writing Pressure Machine," he revealed. "What’s interesting is that it just didn’t make it onto the record – but its absence is not a reflection of the quality of the song. It was an aesthetic decision to keep it off the record.”

“There’s an optimism to it," he continued. "It’s in the dust, it’s in the gutter, and it’s looking at the stars. It’s writing in more of a new wave vehicle.”

During his conversation with NME, Flowers also revealed that The Killers plan to release the follow-up to 2021's Pressure Machine early next year.

“We just had a few days off and Stuart [Price, producer] came and visited us on the road,” he said. “We’re sending things back and forth, and ideas. I’m talking with Shawn Everett [producer] too, and it’s nice to have that combo.”

“You will hear singles this year," he added. "The full record will probably be early next year, but there will definitely be more releases this year.”
