Titled "Joseph, Better You Than Me, the single has not been recorded yet but is expected for a December release.
This will be the Killers third Christmas single, following 2006s "A Great Big Sled, and last years "Dont Shoot Me Santa, both of which were released for charity. As for Elton Johns involvement, he has previously spread some love for the Killers in the press about their fashion sense. In 2006 he told Fashion Rocks, "It's been a thing the British have always been very good at, with Bowie, myself, T. Rex, the Who, Queen. We all embraced that side of it and I think it's good that some American bands are beginning to do that, but it's still very rare for bands to make a real effort when you get groups like the Killers and Scissor Sisters who come along, it's thrilling.
