The Killers announce a Christmas album? YES.

So, The Killers are back? They are and they are back with a Christmas album which doesn’t come as a surprise really. They’ve released annual Christmas EPs and singles over the years but they’ve compiled a full – yes, a FULL album of their favourite festive tracks.

But first, let’s talk about their new Christmas single which they announced a long with their album. “I’ll be home for Christmas” is a charity single, in support of the charity RED which they have backed for years and years. I took a small listen, it starts with a story, about their homes in Nevada. It’s an eerie song. Not something I would expect to hear. I was expecting something more upbeat, but it’s quite a unique christmas song.

Brandon Flowers has definitely given us a special christmas treat this year!

The new single “I’ll be home for Christmas” is available on Apple Music and the Christmas album is out on the 9th of December – a limited CD will then be available, also.

The song list for the album is as follows:

  1. A great big sled (feat. Toni Halliday
  2. Don’t Shoot me Santa (feat. Ryan Pardey)
  3. Joseph, Better you than me (Feat. Elton John and Neil Tennant)
  4.  Happy Birthday Guadalupe! (Feat. Wild Light and Mariachi El Bronx)
  5. Boots
  6. The cowboys’ Christmas Ball
  7. I feel it in my bones (Feat. Ryan Pardey)
  8. Christmas in L.A (Feat. Dawes)
  9. Joel the lump of coal (Feat. Jimmy Kimmel)
  10. Dirt Sledding (Feat. Ryan Pardey and Richard Dreyfuss)
  11. I’ll be home for Christmas (Feat. Ned Humphrey Hansen)
