Video Premiere: The Killers ft. Lou Reed "Tranquilize"

Watch the video for The Killers' new single "Tranquilize" that features rock legend Lou Reed. Directed by fashion photographer Anthony Mandler and filmed in New York's Hells Kitchen, the video is a dark and haunting effort that perfectly complements that song's raw lyrics and lurid, frantic melodies. Lou Reed is featured in the video as well.

The song is taken from The Killers' "Sawdust," a collection of B-sides and other rarities that will be released next week.

Also, check out a short behind the scenes video with Matt Pinfield interviewing Reed and Flowers about the collaboration after the jump.

thanks for the link, arjan! i have to admit, wasn't too keen on the song on first listen but i'm hooked on it now. the video fits the song perfectly, lou reed's and brandon's voice complement each other and hey, lots of close-ups of brandon and his moustache, what more could one want, right?

The Killers Band is one of the great rock bands. They succeed to gain a great audience’s love and I’m no exception. I’ve always tried to attend their concerts but sometimes it seems that I can’t afford some prices. Lately a friend has recommended me a site where to compare ticket prices for free before booking. This way I can look for the cheapest prices offered.
