As Genius describes it, ‘The Man’ is a meditation on modern masculinity- complete with a disco-rock beat”.
‘The Man’ is one of my favourite songs of all time. Despite only coming out a year and a half ago, its one of my most played tracks of all time. Do I have a whole host of reasons for this that I’m going to bore you with? Of course I do, but first I’ll drop a little background to this massive tune. ‘The Man’ was dropped in June 2017 as The Killers first track back in five whole years, in this time frontman Brandon Flowers had released his second solo album, The Desired Effect (banging album, by the way), took time off to have even more kids and reflect on the whole ‘Killers’ experience. The Killers that returned in 2017 aren’t The Killers that released Hot Fuss back in 2004, 13 years, a lot of life experience and a couple of kids changed that.
