The clip for the track–one of two new songs on their upcoming greatest hits collection, Direct Hits, (out November 11)–features Australian actress Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) as a hardworking hotel maid who has bigger dreams in her sights. Max Minghella (The Social Network), who she nearly hits with her car, seems to be the guy to do just that.
While those two crazy kids try to find love, Brandon Flowers spends his time looking over Sin City like a guardian angel who just wants to help these two get their shot.
In an interview with Radio.com, Flowers talked about working with Anthony Gonzalez, better known as the man behind synth-rock sensation M83, on the track. Who apparently isn’t just a skilled producer, but quite the table tennis player.
“We love Anthony. It was nice getting to know him when we played with him on our (2008 full-length) Day & Age tour,” Flowers said. “He’s one of the best ping-pong players that I’ve encountered in my life. I guess in France they teach these things. He also loves a lot of the same music that we do, and so it was great to finally come together and do it.”
Flowers added that they started work on a second song together, although where it will eventually end up is anybody’s guess at this point.
