The Killers broke from their usual set list at London music venue Scala this past Thursday by singing their newest creation, “The Rising Tide.”

The second of their two “warm-up shows” before their concert on Saturday at Hyde Park, the boys surprised their fans with something new.

The group debuted their new song, that was so “fresh” lead singer Brandon Flowers had to read the lyrics off a piece of paper.

The band is currently working on a new album after being on apart for awhile so Flowers could release a solo album in 2010.

Flowers spoke to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 about how the album is coming along.

“We have about four or five [songs],” he said, before adding, “We’ve put them up on the board and they’re sounding good… We think they’re strong.”

The band will be performing next in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel on July 20th.
