listen hear! Song of the Day: The Killers "We Did It In The Name Of Love"
WFPK’s listen hear! Song of the Day spotlights a song we like weekdays at 11:10.
Last month The Killers released their long-awaited greatest hits album Rebel Diamonds, which included the new song, “Spirit.” Fans of the band got a pleasant surprise on Christmas day with a new untitled single. The track was only released on the band’s social accounts but not through streaming services or retailers.
While the song does not officially have a title associated with it online, in a recent interview The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers spoke about a recent recording called “We Did It In The Name Of Love.” He said that “it’s got a little bit of a spirit of Sisters Of Mercy.” The track definitely reminds us of the band’s early days with its ’80s synth rock and new wave spirit.
