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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
