The Killers Premiere "Human" Video

October 16, 2008 5:20 PM ET

The Killers released their new video for "Human" today, the first single from their upcoming Day & Age. In the clip, the Killers set up their gear in a desert setting that's straight out of every John Ford film ever made and perform the song. There are also cougars and Siberian tigers roaming the rocks, as well as massive lighting rigs even though they're performing during daytime in the desert. The other big revelation: Brandon Flowers has shaved his moustache since leaving Sam's Town. Day & Age is out November 25th, the same week as Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy and Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
