The Killers Reveal Sir Elton John Helped With 'Battle Born' Track Titles

American rockers The Killers have revealed that it’s British singer-songwriter Elton John who has inspired some of the track titles on their forthcoming new album ‘Battle Born’ - out September 18th.

Sir Elton is apparently known to write out pages and pages of track titles before starting songs or writing lyrics, and donated ‘Miss Atomic Bomb’ - a track on their new record - to the band after a meeting.

“He just said, 'Do you like titles?'... he writes pages of titles before lyrics,” The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers told The Sun. “I didn't come up with 'Miss Atomic Bomb', but I was reading something about Nevada history shortly after that and that just jumped out. That's such a strong title, a great launching pad.”

The Darkness - Pinewood Smile (Album Review)
Thu 19 Oct 2017
“History will remember us as the apathetic generation who negligently ushered in a dreadful dystopian age that may or may not come to be known as ‘The Rise of the Arseclowns’.” With his unique take on Brexit and Donald Trump matching his group’s equally idiosyncratic and often hilarious new record, we’d like to say welcome back Sir Justin of Hawkins: may conformity and political correctness never darken your wonderfully unhinged door.
Weezer - Pacific Daydream (Album Review)
Mon 30 Oct 2017
Weezer. Oh no. Last year’s ‘White Album’ restored faith in California’s most annoyingly inconsistent sons. After 15 years spent chipping away at their legacy, this guitar-toting, Beach Boys-worshiping band decided to take what made them brilliant in the first place and boot it into 2016. It was home to ‘50s melodies, alt-rock fuzz and painfully awkward words spewing from Rivers Cuomo’s lyric sheet. It was a Weezer record fans could finally be proud of.

Bryan Adams - Ultimate (Album Review)
Tue 14 Nov 2017
If every picture paints a visual story, every ‘best of’ album tells a musical one. For example, there’s the feeling any Bryan Adams collection called ‘Ultimate’ shouldn’t include tracks recorded after the early ‘90s. Although the truth isn’t quite that straightforward, it’s hard to disagree when listening to the Canadian rocker’s latest career-spanning compilation.
