Bruce Springsteen revealed that he is collaborating with the Killers just a few days ago. Now the song they worked on together has been released.
Bruce Springsteen has been busy of late between this and planning a 2022 tour with the E Street Band.
On his work with the Killers, The Boss told Sirius XM (via the Rolling Stone): "It’s [Brandon Flowers] and I with the band, we have done something that is going to come out soon, in a week or so."
Their collaboration will already be familiar to The Killers fans.
It's a re-imagining of the song "A Dustland Fairytale" from the band's 2008 album 'Day and Age.'
Bruce Springsteen is mutually a fan of Flowers and his band.
According to a press release, this is Bruce’s favorite Killers song and that’s why it was selected.
The title of the song is shortened down to "Dustland" in the Bruce version.
Brandon also shared a long post on Instagram of how the collaboration came about.
Regarding The Boss, he wrote: "Before I really became a fan of his, I was in the business of stadium-size everything. Larger than life EVERYTHING. Certainly larger than the lives of Jeannie and Terry Flowers. But Bruce has written a lot about people like my parents and found a whole lot of beauty in otherwise invisible people’s hopes and dreams. Their struggles, and their losses.
"I’m grateful to him for opening this door for me. I’m grateful to my parents for their example to me. Now go find something new out about your dad, give your mom a big hug, and for god’s sake listen to Bruce Springsteen."
Listen to 'Dustland' now.
