Flowers told Newsweek that “Rut” is told from the perspective of Flowers’ wife, Tana Mundkowsky.
“She has a complex version of [post-traumatic stress disorder] from her childhood, and it’s her speaking,” he told Newsweek. “It’s emotional and the only song I’ve had to sit down with her and play at the piano, just to make sure it was OK with her.”
The Killers are currently in the middle of a U.S. tour. The band arrives in Salt Lake City to play at the Vivint Smart Home Arena on Feb. 6.
