The Killers address America’s injustice with heart-wrenching ‘Land of the Free’
The group’s poignant new visual was directed by Spike Lee.
The Killers are starting out 2019 by sending an important message in the best way they know how — through song. The rock group shared a powerful new track Monday morning (Jan. 14), titled “Land of the Free,” which addresses the irony of America’s nickname in a time when the country feels rather divided by tragedy.
Along with the track, The Killers released the video for “Land of the Free,” which was directed by Spike Lee. The Oscar-winning director filmed the video in late 2018, capturing heartbreaking, yet moving images of migrant families traveling to the U.S./Mexico border making their way towards “the land of the free.”
