The Killers “We Did It in the Name of Love” – Single of the Week

Single of the Week: The Killers "We Did It in the Name of Love"
The Killers “We Did It in the Name of Love”

Our featured track this week is “We Did It in the Name of Love” by Las Vegas indie rock band The Killers.

The song is for now only available via the band’s social platforms, and follows their greatest hits album Rebel Diamonds, featuring another new song called “Spirit,” released earlier last month.

In a recent interview with The Current, Brandon Flowers said that “We Did It In The Name Of Love” was recorded during a session at someone’s analog home studio in California and that “it’s got a little bit of a spirit of Sisters Of Mercy.”

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. added: “I needed to be close to home at the time; my wife was going to give birth any minute, so we just decided to rent this studio that hadn’t been touched since 1977. There was not a computer in the studio, so we had to buy a computer and we basically hooked it up to his system. And we just started, you know, carving some songs.”
