The Killers lead singer Brandon Flowers paid homage to his wife in the band’s latest music video.

The band released the new music video for the song “Rut” from their “Wonderful Wonderful” album released this past fall.

None of the band members make an appearance in the video.

The video shows a young woman struggling with depression.

“It chronicles her lifetime of depression from her childhood to adulthood, portraying a visual interpretation of the song that was inspired by the struggles of Flowers’ own wife,” according to Uproxx, a pop culture website.

Flowers told Newsweek that “Rut” is told from the perspective of his wife, Tana Mundkowsky.

“She has a complex version of [post-traumatic stress disorder] from her childhood, and it’s her speaking,” he told Newsweek. “It’s emotional and the only song I’ve had to sit down with her and play at the piano, just to make sure it was OK with her.”

The Killers are currently in the middle of a U.S. tour.
