The band, who are back with their first album in four years 'Battle Born' also told us they've come a long way since their first record 'Hot Fuss'.
Frontman Brandon Flowers said: "I'm a more concise, clear writer. No matter how close to your heart you hold that first record the lyrics aren't as fully realised as they are now.
"I've read more books, grown, we've had more experiences and we've played so many live shows that we can't help but be more powerful as a band. So hopefully those things should come through on 'Battle Born'."
Asked how the band manage to keep so consistent throughout the years, they told us: "Within each one of us we have this integrity. We have this strong, pig-headed type of non-bending thing about us. The way we do things and I think it's just the four of us in combination not willing to compromise."
The band are set to hit the stage at midnight UK time for a live stream show that you can watch HERE.
And singer Brandon told us that they were inspired by other big bands like Coldplay into doing this worldwide gig.
He said: "I've seen the Arcade Fire one and the Coldplay one. And the opportunity to have a director Werner Herzog. He is top of the list. Everything fell into place."
He also told us that playing to *so* many people across the world made him quite emotional.
"It's so communal. It's bringing the whole world together. And it makes me feel almost emotional about it because to think of all these people.
"We're still in the middle of it. It's all happened so fast we don't realise how worldwide it really has become. I'm really excited about it."
