The Killers – The man (new video)

The Killers have just released the music video for their latest single “The man”. It’s the first new song in five years and comes from their forthcoming fifth studio album “Wonderful wonderful”.
The video, which was directed by Tim Mattia (Coldplay, Muse, Florence and the machine), sees frontman Brandon Flowers plays various types of men including a cowboy, an Elvis-style entertainer and a tuxedo-clad Bond type.
“Wonderful wonderful” is expected later this year.
It was recorded in studios between Las Vegas and Los Angeles with producer Garret “Jacknife” Lee, who had previously worked with U2, R.E.M and Jake Bugg.
The album features contributions from Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler for a guitar part on track “Have all the songs been written?”. Additionally, Flowers wrote “Some kind of love” over a song by Brian Eno.

Lyrics:

I know the score like the back of my hand
Them other boys, I don’t give a damn
They kiss on the ring, I carry the crown
Nothing can break, nothing can break me down
Don’t need no advice, I got a plan
I know the direction, the lay of the land
I know the score like the back of my hand
Them other boys, I don’t give a damn

I’m the man, come round
No-no-nothing can break, no-nothing can break me down
I’m the man, come round and
No-no-nothing can break, you can’t break me down

I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank
I got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man
I got skin in the game
I got a household name
I got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man

When it comes to Friday, I always earn
Don’t try to teach me, I got nothing to learn
‘Cause baby I’m gifted
You see what I mean?
USDA certified lean

I’m the man, come round
No-no-nothing can break, you can’t break me down

I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank
I got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man
I got skin in the game
I don’t feel no pain
I got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man

Who’s the man? Who’s the man?
I’m the man, I’m the man
Who’s the man with the plan?
I’m the man

Who’s the man? Who’s the man?
I’m the man, I’m the man
Who’s the man with the plan?
I’m the man

I’m the man
I’m the man

I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank
I got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man
I got skin in the game
Headed to the hall of fame
I got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man

Right hand to God
First in command
My testimony, but I take the stand

Who’s the man? Who’s the man?
I’m the man, I’m the man
Who’s the man with the plan?
I’m the man

Who’s the man? Who’s the man?
I’m the man, I’m the man
Who’s the man with the plan?
I’m the man

I don’t give a damn
I’m the man
