By now, you’ve heard most (if not all) of The Killers’ latest release, Wonderful Wonderful.

The album has a different, almost experimental feel when compared to the band’s previous albums. But there’s one song on the album that feels like familiar, old-school Killers, and that’s “Run for Cover”—a song that frontman Brandon Flowers compares to mashed potatoes and turkey, while drummer Ronnie Vannucci calls it “comfort punk.”
