The Killers released a new song called “Land of the Free,” in which the lyrics target current social and political events. The song criticizes Trump’s border wall and America’s continued failure to reform gun control reform.
When speaking to Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe, frontman Brandon Flowers said, “I think it is a very important time right now and ‘enough is enough’ was basically where it comes from. It started in my mind around when Sandy Hook happened and as a father, how that affected me, and then it just started stacking up. It was things like Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, things like what’s happening at the wall,” he continued.
Listen to the song below.
