When the Killers have Tim Burton on hand to direct their new music video, you have to expect at least a little star power (and some black and white stripes). “Here With Me” has both, with Winona Ryder starring as the companion and obsession of Craig Roberts, who you may recognize as the lead of “Submarine.”
You didn’t see “Submarine?” Well, watch it right after watching this.
The Killers are house band to Roberts’ character’s waltz with a wax figure-slash-mannequin, as he imagines that a very famous woman is his sweetheart. It’s a beautiful short, in addition to being kind of funny and disturbed.
Burton has certainly used Ryder in his work before, starting with “Beetlejuice” and, most recently, for animated flick “Frankenweenie.” Roberts should be in everything, ever.
“Here With Me” is off of the Killers’ “Battle Born,” out earlier this year.
The Killers are currently on tour, but a few dates have been curbed due to frontman Brandon Flowers’ ongoing struggle with laryngitis. Madison Square Garden is one of those stops. check out the band’s announcement here.
