The Killers – Wonderful Wonderful – Vinyl LP, Gatefold Jacket, Island Records, 2017
Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release, the fifth album from the Las Vegas-based alt rock band. Wonderful Wonderful is the long-awaited follow-up to their 2012 album Battle Born. Brandon Flowers revealed in May 2015 that he and guitarist Dave Keuning were exchanging ideas for The Killers’ fifth studio album. The band began work on the album at their own Battle Born Studios and also rented houses in Joshua Tree National Park and San Diego. They began working with Jacknife Lee, who had been recommended to them by U2 frontman Bono. Lee worked with the band between September 2016 and May 2017 at his home studio in Topanga, California, and at National SouthWestern Recording studios in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lee produced all tracks on the album alongside The Killers. The band enlisted Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits) for a guitar part on “Have All the Songs Been Written?”.
