Posted on

The Killers have a longstanding tradition of releasing Christmas singles to benefit Bono’s (RED) foundation. The group shared their 11th annual holiday single Friday — a rendition of Bing Crosby’s “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” — along with some less expected news: The Killers have compiled their 11 seasonal cuts into a new album, Don’t Waste Your Wishes.

The band’s new version of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is a duet between frontman Brandon Flowers and his fourth grade teacher Ned Humphrey Hansen. Other guests on Don’t Waste Your Wishes include Elton John, Dawes, and Jimmy Kimmel.

Though the Killers hit the road in 2016 and released a 10th anniversary reissue of their sophomore album Sam’s Town, they haven’t released an album of new material since 2012’s Battle Born.

Don’t Waste Your Wishes is currently available exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music. A physical edition will hit shelves Dec. 9. Hear the album below.
