Listen to Fall Out Boy’s new tune ‘Champion’

After promising fans a brand new song off their upcoming album, Fall Out Boy has kept their promised and released their new tune. On Thursday (June 22), the Chicago-founded band released their second single off M A N I A, “Champion.” Earlier this month, bassist Pete Wentz took to Instagram to give fans a little bit of  background on the new jam.

“I really started to think that this one really reminds me of this moment in ‘The Never-Ending Story.’ It always stuck out to me as a kid- first they’re like ‘wait you’re just a kid lol we need a warrior,'” wrote the musician on his social media page.  “Then they’re like ‘ok you’ll do I guess you’ll do’ and then ‘no one can help you and if you don’t do this our entire world dies, so no pressure.'” Listen to “Champion” here.

“Champion” will join lead single “Young and Menace” on Fall Out Boy’s upcoming seventh studio album. M A N I A is set to be released on Sept. 15 with pre-orders currently available on the band’s website here.

In addition to the Verified Fan registration, the group has also revealed that $1 from every ticket sold will go towards the Fall Out Boy Fund. The band created the fund as a way to give back to charities in Chicago.

Listen to The Killers’ new funky song ‘The Man’

Less than a week after word spread that The Killers would be releasing a brand new song very soon and giving a teaser of it, the four-piece has finally unveiled the full version of the new track. On Wednesday (June 14), the LAs Vegas-based band unveiled the audio of their first new song in five years, Christmas songs excluded, “The Man.” Frontman Brandon Flowers headed over the Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to premiered the song as the “Hottest Record.” During the interview that followed the upbeat tune, Flowers revealed that the new album, which has been confirmed to be titled Wonderful Wonderful, was produced by Jacknife Lee and Stuart Price, who Flowers has worked with in the past.

“We mostly did it with Jacknife and then we did one song that I wrote with Stuart. But it was great, it’s always nice to bring fresh blood in and Jacknife, we have never worked with before and he’s so  creative right now and he is so energetic and sometime, you need that.”

When asked by the DJ about how the new tune sounds, Flowers said the following: “Sonically, it’s pretty funky. Funkier than anything we’ve ever done before and I do hear things that remind me of quintessential Killers things and that starts with Mark’s [Stoermer] bass line, our bass player, has a prominent feature on this song and this is what he’s really great at.” To listen to the complete interview, head on over here.

Though an official release date has not been given for Wonderful Wonderful, the new album will be the group’s fifth studio album. Wonderful Wonderful is the Killers’ follow-up to 2012’s Battle Born. Last year, they released a compilation of their previously released Christmas song and named it Don’t Waste Your Wishes.
