It is perhaps hard to believe, but Vegas rockers the Killers have hit ten years! You heard it right, ten years. And the foursome announced today (September 16) that they will release a compilation of the greatest hits from their four albums on November 11 on Island.
Titled Direct Hits, there will be a collection of singles from their four albums, from their breakout debut Hot Fuss all the way to last year’s spectacularly built Battle Born. In addition, the compilation will include two new singles, “At The Night,” which was produced by M83’s Anthony Gonzales and “Just Another Girl,” which reunited them with Stuart Price, who was the board man behind Day & Age.
The Killers have also prepared a special Fan Deluxe Edition that will contain the Deluxe CD, a documentary DVD of The Killerscareer, as well as 5 10- inch vinyl records comprising all songs on Direct Hits.
