The Killers to Release New Holiday Single to Benefit RED Campaign
The Killers haven't released a studio album since 2008, but they keep getting together to release holiday singles for charity. Arjan Writes says the group has a new Christmas single coming out this week in support of the RED campaign, which raises awareness and money to fight HIV and AIDS in Africa.
The song is apparently titled 'Cowboy Christmas' or 'The Cowboy's Christmas Balls,' and will hit digital outlets on Thursday, Dec. 1, which happens to be World AIDS Day. Arjan has obtained stills from the music video shoot, which depicts the band in western gear.
Since 2006, the Killers have released a holiday single every year to benefit RED. The new cowboy track joins previous holiday songs 'A Great Big Sled,' 'Don't Shoot Me Santa,' 'Joseph, Better You Than Me,' 'Happy Birthday Guadalupe' and 'Boots.'
The Killers' last studio release was 2008's 'Day & Age.' They took a hiatus before getting back together this summer to begin working on their fourth album. The Brandon Flowers-led band began scoring hits beginning in 2004 with 'Somebody Told Me,' 'Mr. Brightside' and 'When You Were Young.'
