Listen To The Killers’ New Song ‘Shot At The Night’ Featuring M83
The Killers are celebrating their ten-year anniversary by gathering a few of their greatest hits onto one brand new album.
Direct Hits, out November 11, features 13-tracks spanning all four of the band’s records including the first song they ever wrote, “Mr. Brightside” from their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss to “Miss Atomic Bomb” off their latest release, 2012’s Battle Born.
The band’s greatest hits collection will also feature two new songs: “Just Another Girl,” produced by longtime Killers collaborator, Stuart Price and “Shot At The Night,” which was produced by M83. Listen to the latter above.
In an interview with Radio.com, guitarist Dave Keuning admitted that their label, Island Records, suggested they work with M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez). “There was a mutual thing like, ‘Yeah we think he’s good. We’ll try him out,’” Keuning said. “It’s something we finally agreed with our label on.”
He also said the band wasn’t opposed to working with Gonzalez on another song. “I’d say maybe there’s a 65 percent chance we’ll work with him again,” Keuning joked.
The song will be released on iTunes tomorrow (September 17).
