It's The Killers' New Single "Runaways"

The Killers' new single "Runaways" is set to debut today but has leaked online a bit early. Musically, there are slight shades reminiscent of the band's 2006 album Sam's Town, mainly in the intro. However, overall, the synthy guitar-pop jam mostly reminds me of something that would have sounded at home on 2008's Day & Age.

I guess in that sense, the song doesn't indicate that Brandon Flowers and the gang have progressed much, but that's okay — Day & Age was a solid album, and "Runaways" has some fat guitar riffs that make me believe they've still got edge.
