Springsteen and The Killers will perform the tune and participate in an interview at 8 a.m. EDT at NBC’s The Today Show.
Brandon Flowers, frontman of The Killers, spoke earlier today on social media on the concept of collaboration from Springsteen.
He explained that ‘A Dustland Fairytale’, was made to his parents Terry and Jeannie when his mother was battling cancer.
“It was an attempt to better understand my dad, who is sometimes a mystery to me. To grieve for my mother. To acknowledge their sacrifices, and maybe even catch a glimpse of just how strong love needs to be to make it in this world. It was my therapy. It was cathartic.”Brandon Flowers.
Flowers told, elsewhere in the statement, how Springsteen’s work inspired his own songwriting.
“Bruce has written a lot about people like my parents and found a whole lot of beauty in otherwise invisible people’s hopes and dreams.Added Flowers.
I’m grateful to him for opening this door for me.”
