The Killers have unveiled a new standalone song “Land Of The Free” with a video by Academy Award-winning director Spike Lee. The Killers invited Spike Lee to make the video for the song, a heartfelt lament inspired by current events and recent national tragedies.

Recorded at their own Battle Born Studios in Las Vegas, Nevada and produced by Jacknife Lee, with additional gospel vocals by (vocal co-arranger) Lynn Mabry, Dorian Holley, Will Wheaton, Sherree Patrice Brown, Akasha Mabry and Killers’ touring vocalists Amanda Brown, Danielle René Withers and Erica Canales.

The band gave Spike Lee full creative rein, and he filmed the video over a few weeks at the tail end of 2018, traveling to the U.S./Mexico border to capture scenes of migrants families as they made their way towards "the land of the free".
