The Killers Get Saxual

November 23, 2008

This song, from The Killer’s Day and Age, out this Monday, November 24th, is my favorite so far off of the recently-leaked album.

“Spaceman” is about an alien abduction. It features typical Killers metaphors and abstract ideas, like “zipping white light beams”.

And damn, is it catchy. Flowers’ voice shines as usual. Noticeably added is a saxophone, which I can’t remember them ever utilizing.

It was first-heard on their latest SNL appearance, but this version is straight off the album.

P.S. At 3:40 in the song, can I get a “Born To Run”?
