Smile like you mean it -- The weekend is here and The Killers just dropped their first new music of 2023, “Your Side of Town,” picking up right where their previous synth-filled single left off.

After teasing fans in a post on their social channels earlier this week, which also included brand new photo artwork, The Killers' first new single of the year, "Your Side Of Town," has arrived today, August 25.

Co-produced by The Killers, along with Stuart Price and Shawn Everett, "It's got the ghosts of a lot of the synth music that inspired us over the years," the band says, "And yet, somehow, feels completely our own. Now it's yours! Turn it up." Be sure to pick up the song -- and hear it in the mix now on Audacy's The Killers Radio.

"Your Side Of Town" follows up last year's one-off single "boy," recorded during their 2021 Pressure Machine sessions. The band is currently on the road overseas and will return stateside mid-September for headlining festival appearances at New Jersey's Sea.Hear.Now, Las Vegas' Life Is Beautiful, and more.
