(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 16 - After years of mutual appreciation, the Killers and Bruce Springsteen collaborate for the first time: they have released the song "Dustland", a remake of the favorite song by Bruce of the Killers, "A Dustland Fairytale", from acclaimed 2008 Day & Age album. Killers frontman Brandon Flowers told suisocial how the collaboration was born from a message received "from an unknown number" on February 29, 2020, after the pandemic had just begun. "I was at the airport and started getting some messages from a number I didn't sign in my phone. 'Looking at Glastonbury. You've become a hellish live band, my brother! I love the gold dress! We have to do Dustland someday.' Signed: Bruce ". Flowers thinks of a joke, of Bruce Hornsby ("but I haven't talked to him since 2015 ") or whether it's really Bruce Springsteen (" I forgot to put both of Bruce's numbers on that phone ")." I write to Evan (Bruce and Patti's son who became a friend of mine) and I verify that the number is really his father. "Then the singer explains:" I have always tried to find and reflect the elusive light in my songs. It's a trait I inherited from my mother Jean. She died of a brain tumor in 2010 at the age of 64 ... Sixty-four! I'll be 40 next week and I'm starting to realize how young I was. Too young. Dustland was written in the midst of his battle with cancer. It was my therapy.I forgot to put both of Bruce's numbers on that phone ")." I write to Evan (Bruce and Patti's son who has become a friend of mine) and verify that the number is really his father. "Then the singer explains:" I've always been looking for to find and reflect the elusive light in my songs. It's a trait I inherited from my mother Jean. She died of a brain tumor in 2010 at the age of 64 ... Sixty-four! I'll be 40 next week and I'm starting to realize how young I was. Too young.

   It was cathartic. This is where Bruce comes in. Before I really became a fan of his, I took care of everything in stadium dimensions. Everything bigger than life. But Bruce wrote a lot about people like my parents and found a lot of beauty in the hopes and dreams of otherwise invisible people. Their struggles and their losses. I am grateful to him for opening this door for me. I am grateful to my parents for the example they set me. Now go find out something new about your father, hug your mother and, for God's sake, listen to Bruce Springsteen. "(ANSA).
