The Killers are finally ready to drop the first single from their next album "Battle Born." "Runaways" will be arriving next week, on July 9.

The band announced it -- and the single cover art -- today, just three-and-a-half weeks after they bowed the trailer to "Battle Born," due this some time this fall. As previously reported, the Las Vegas troupe recruited a number of high-power producers including Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Brendan O’Brien, and Stuart Price to produce the new set.

The rock act's last album was 2008's "Day & Age."

Check out the trailer below:
