The Killers - Shot At The Night

I guess The Killers have reached that stage in a band's lifetime where greatest hits compilations make sense.  It's strange to think that they've been around for ten years, but at the same time, The Killers are a staple name among today's alternative rock crowd.  Plus, Hot Fuss will forever be a modern new wave classic in my eyes.

To celebrate this timely achievement, The Killers are releasing Direct Hits, their first greatest hits compilation.  Arriving on November 11, the album will feature thirteen of their signature tracks and two new songs.  The first new song of the pair has already been released as a promo single.  "Shot At The Night" was produced by Anthony Gonzalez of M83 fame.  It actually sounds more like "M83 (Feat. Brandon Flowers)" rather than a Killers single.  I'm not complaining though, since the end result is fantastic either way.

A deluxe edition of Direct Hits is also on the way, including extra tracks such as the original "Mr. Brightside" demo, a Calvin Harris remix of "When You Were Young", and "Be Still" from Battle Born.  It'll also come with a DVD and five 10" records.
