The Killers have released some of the finest, most memorable, most loved songs of the last ten years, and they’re still going strong. Last year, in celebration of their first decade together, the band released Direct Hits on Island Records. A collection of singles from their four albums, plus two new songs, the album begins with the band’s breakthrough hit – and first song they wrote together – “Mr Brightside.” It follows the group from debut album Hot Fuss and its further singles, “Somebody Told Me,” “Smile Like You Mean It,” and “All These Things That I’ve Done,” “Sam’s Town’s,” “When You Were Young,” “Read My Mind,” and “For Reasons Unknown,” via Day & Age’s singles, including massive 2008 hit, “Human,” and last year’s stunning Battle Born album singles, kicking off with “Runaways.” A brace of brand new songs completes the set: “Shot At The Night” was recorded with M83’s Anthony Gonzales. The video for the song was directed by Robert Schober and was shot entirely in Las Vegas. “Just Another Girl,” meanwhile, was produced by long time Killers collaborator Stuart Price, who produced 2008’s Day & Age.
