Listen: The Killers Lament Lost Love on New Song ‘Just Another Girl’
The uptempo track is heavy with acoustic guitars, as frontman Brandon Flowers laments a lost love over a soaring, synth-heavy chorus (“All of my friends say/I should move on/All of my friends say/She’s just another girl/Then why can’t I sleep at night?/And why don’t the moon look right?”).

While the only other new song on Direct Hits — “Shot at the Night” — was recorded with Anthony Gonzalez of M83, “Just Another Girl” was created with longtime Killers associate Stuart Price, who remixed early singles like “Mr. Brightside” and produced 2008’s Day & Age.
“I always say Stuart is my brother,” Flowers recently told Radio.com. “I knew it right away when I met him. He’s just one of the most musical guys I’ve ever met. We share a lot of the same loves when it comes to synthesizer bands and things like that.”
“I feel like this puts a long of things in perspective,” Flowers continued of Direct Hits. “When I look at it, I’m really proud of it, but I’m also really excited about evolving and growing. I look at the songs that maybe are my favorites on it, and maybe I’m wondering if I need to conjure up those spirits, if they’re still in there.”
