The Killers will return with their fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful on September 22. We've heard two songs from the record so far—the disco-funk of "The Man" and the more propulsive, politically-charged "Run for Cover." "The Man" came with a video of handsome person Brandon Flowers being handsome; now "Run for Cover" has a video too. Directed by Tarik Mikou, it's sleek and intriguing, taking the song's idea of fleeing quite literally. It's all told through flashbacks, building to a Molotov-sparked car on fire, cut with ominous images of the band lurking in the shadows. Watch the video at the top of the page.
