4Ever Songs: The Killers ‘Human’

The Killers Day & Age was Brandon Flowers and co’s third studio album, released on 18 November 2008. The LP included the likes of Spaceman, A Dustland Fairytale and their enduring hit and stadium filler, Human.

The iconic song – which was the first track to be taken from the album – was released on 22 September 2008 and became an instant indie anthem. Over a decade later and it’s still one of the most popular tracks during their live set.

Music by Bergman: Interpol

Almost 25 years after their formation, Interpol have survived everything. Post 9/11 New York that saw them emerge as the rock saviours of the 21st century, a debut album connected to the best memories of an entire generation, the post-punk revival that they spearheaded, the revival of that revival, their imitators, the parallel projects of their members and even themselves. At this point, Interpol have dodged so many bullets that they have earned the right to make their story theirs and no one else’s. But, above all, Paul Banks, Daniel Kessler and Sam Fogarino have earned the right to stretch that story as far and as long as they want: they will survive whatever comes next, and as a testimony they will give us new choruses that hurt and comfort at the same time.

Interpol have marked their return by sharing the cinematic video for new single ‘Toni’ and announcing details of their seventh album, ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’.

Divus Julius presents: ODESZA

Harrison Mills (a.k.a. Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (a.k.a. BeachesBeaches) are the members of ODESZA, an American electronic duo. They began collaborating on music in college for fun, but their debut album Summer’s Gone quickly gained traction in the underground electronic music scene. A Moment Apart, their third studio album, was released in 2017 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. 

ODESZA continues to heal the world with their highly anticipated return. Since the release of their newest single, “The Last Goodbye,” featuring the legendary Bettye LaVette, fans have been chomping at the bit for the album. But, for now, ODESZA is keeping us occupied by releasing the official music video for the new tune.

4Ever Songs: Fleetwood Mac ‘Dreams’

In 1976, hidden behind lush Victorian drapes, atop a black velvet bed in the back studio of Sausalito’s Record Plant, a devastated Stevie Nicks sat alone at a Fender Rhodes piano. The master lyricist, beloved as a folk-rock matriarch, spilled her heartache into “Dreams.” The classic track became one of four US Top 10 singles from Fleetwood Mac’s eleventh studio album, Rumours

The hit record was excruciatingly revealing. The masterful collection elevated the influential rock quintet to the iconic group whose music would forever mark the evolution of folk. While Rumours climbed charts in 1977, the walls were crumbling around them.
