The Killers Reveal 'Direct Hits' Best-Of, Premiere M83 Collaboration
Published Sep 16, 2013Vegas rockers the Killers have announced an upcoming greatest hits set, which will include the band's recent in-studio team-up with shoegazing electro-pop favourite M83 (a.k.a. Anthony Gonzalez).
The band pop off Direct Hits on November 11 via Universal Music Canada. The best-of jumps from early singles like "Mr. Brightside" and "Somebody Told Me" up to last year's Battle Born. In addition, it includes the M83 collaboration "Shot at the Night." The song premired on BBC Radio 1 earlier today (September 16), and you can sample the glitzy, synth-stricken anthem down below.
A deluxe edition adds a demo of "Mr. Brightside," Calvin Harris's remix of "When We Were Young" and "Be Still." The Killers have also prepared a "Fan Deluxe Edition," which will include the deluxe CD and a documentary DVD of the Killers' career, as well as five 10-inch vinyl records comprising all songs on Direct Hits.
