The GOOD news? The Killers are, indeed, preparing a new Christmas song for this year. It should be their 11th, I think (though I ran out of fingers counting). (the crowd goes wild !!!)
The BAD news? It would appear this will be their last. (hushed silence descends)
This comes to us from Mark Stoermer, the bass player for the band. In a conversation with ABC Radio, Stoermer said this:
"It's supposed to be the last one, I think. We're gonna release it as a packaged album, all the songs together, I think is the plan. And just like all the others, it will go 100 per cent to (RED) campaign."
Stoermer added that he thought they could have ended at 10, but they didn't (maybe Stoermer never saw "Spinal Tap"). He also said that the logistics have been difficult. "[The annual Christmas single] takes weeks to months of our time," he said.
So that's the name of that tune.
I notice you've been looking at the fetching picture of Jennifer Nettles on the right. Yeah, I saw you looking. Jennifer's Christmas album "To Celebrate Christmas" is the latest addition to our PREviews page. Why doncha go have a look.
