However, he continued work on the album, forging many of the tracks alongside Flowers. He was much more eager to go to the studio, he felt like he had a monkey off his back, he really contributed a lot to this record.
After celebrating the 10th anniversary of their second album Sam's Town by holding a few concerts, Flowers realized they wanted to make an actual record and not just "slap a bunch of songs together".
He stated Wonderful Wonderful is the closest thing they have done to their album. Lyrically, the album is about what it means to be a man, as Flowers revealed on an interview with Entertainment Weekly : "In your head it's about being tough and bringing home the bacon, but what I've come to find is it's really more about empathy and compassion.
Instead of just drawing upon all these experiences and maybe using them in other songs, I am going straight for it with this and singing about my life and my family and that's something different for me. He said: "Usually I feel protective of her but I decided to take it head on.
So 'Rut' is about her submitting to it. That doesn't mean that she's gonna let it beat her, but rather that she's gonna finally acknowledge that it's there and promise to break this cycle.
Starting on May 6, , the band tweeted a series of photographs and short videos to tease the album's lead single. On June 14, , it was finally released as the first single from the album.
On July 28, the band released the song " Run for Cover " as the album's first promotional single , which was made available as an instant download for pre-orders of the album. The album's third single, "Rut", was serviced to UK hot adult contemporary radio on December 9, On the short tour the band embarked on in September , the songs "The Calling", "Tyson vs Douglas", and "Life to Come" were played during the encore.
Wonderful Wonderful received generally positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic , which assigns a normalized rating out of to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 71, based on 25 reviews. AllMusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote, "By this point, Flowers' obsessions and signatures are so idiosyncratic, he's clearly the auteur behind Wonderful Wonderful just as he was with The Desired Effect , and the record charms because its ridiculousness is sincere and his sincerity is ridiculous — two qualities that make him and his art messy and quite genuine.
It might get lonely at the top, but the Killers aren't going anywhere just yet. In a positive review, Niall Doherty of Q magazine described it as a "glossy indie-pop album with sonics as slick and glistening as a brand-new Vegas skyscraper".
Wonderful Wonderful debuted at number one on the US Billboard , becoming their first record to top the chart. All tracks produced by Jacknife Lee , except where noted. Credits adapted from the liner notes of the deluxe edition of Wonderful Wonderful. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
