New Music: The Killers’ Christmas Album, Don’t Waste Your Wishes

Spread the love

Do we need a Killers Christmas album? Because here it is. Don’t Waste Your Wishes collects the 10 holiday-themed singles the band has previously recorded and released annually for Bono’s anti-AIDS charity (RED), plus one new song, a weird, Western-themed cover of Bing Crosby’s “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” that’s mostly spoken word.

Over the years, the Killers’ Christmas series featured a host of special guests, including Elton John and Neil Tennant, Dawes, and Jimmy Kimmel. “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” features Killers frontman Brandon Flowers’s fourth-grade science teacher, Ned Humphrey Hansen. The band has collected all of the previously released songs on a new website.

The album will be available as a limited-edition CD on December 9, but it’s available today as an iTunes/Apple Music exclusive. Stream Don’t Waste Your Wishes and revisit the Killers’ 2009 video for “Don’t Shoot Me Santa,” featuring Ryan Pardey, below.
