Among the new material is “Shot At the Night”, a collaboration between The Killers and M83′s Anthony Gonzalez. The glitzy gospel anthem, which may or may not include a nod to Talking Heads’ “Once in a Lifetime”, premiered today on BBC Radio 1.
In an interview with Radio.com last month, guitarist Dave Keuning said the collaboration was fostered by the band’s label. “There was a mutual thing like, ‘Yeah we think [Gonzalez]’s good. We’ll try him out. It’s something we finally agreed with our label on.”
Direct Hits will be released in standard and deluxe editions, the latter of which tacks on an original demo of “Mr. Brightside” and Calvin Harris’ remix of “When We Were Young”.
