The Killers - A Dustland Fairytale (with full orchestra) @ Late Show with David Letterman (2009)
“We were trying to make a more playful, pop record with Day & Age, but I think that “Dustland” is a great example of us not being able to let go of that sort of earnest seed that we had planted on Sam’s Town. It was an important song. I went through a lot of things: My mom got diagnosed with a brain tumor and I just started to think a lot about her and my dad’s generation. They were born in the ’40s, which comes with a certain type of difference. They’re just different Americans than we are.” (Brandon Flowers, Spin Magazine 2015)
Brandon Flowers and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. sat down with Sarah Champion backstage at BST Hyde Park moments before their headline set to discuss staying uncomfortable when making new music, their bucket list gigs, and also answered questions from fans!
