The Killers and Bruce Springsteen have shared their new collaboration "Dustland", which is a new version of the group's 2008 single "A Dustland Fairytale".

"Dustland" sees Springsteen and The Killers' Brandon Flowers duet on a remake of the band's 2008 single "A Dustland Fairytale", which featured on The Killers' Day & Age album.

Flowers uploaded a new Instagram post marking the release of the collaboration, revealing he received some messages from Springsteen about The Killers' Glastonbury performance in February 2020, and The Boss said in the message, "We gotta do "Dustland" one day."

After explaining that "Dustland" was written during his mum's battle with cancer, Flowers wrote about how The Boss has "written a lot about people like my parents and found a whole lot of beauty in otherwise invisible people's hopes and dreams." Flowers added, "I'm grateful to him for opening this door for me. I'm grateful to my parents for their example to me. Now go find something new out about your dad, give your mom a big hug, and for god's sake listen to Bruce Springsteen."
