THE KILLERS have released this year’s holiday treat for their fans, the Don’t Waste Your Wishes charity album, which dropped exclusively on Nov. 18 on iTunes and Apple Music. The compilation of singles — which the Las Vegas band has gifted annually as a holiday benefit for the (RED) charity, cofounded by Bono to battle AIDS in Africa — also features a new soon-to-be classic for all the little Victims out there, with a cover of the holiday staple “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” featuring a meandering spoken-word intro about singer Brandon Flowers’s childhood.
Among the highlights on the 11-track album are previously released tracks with Elton John and the Pet Shop Boys’s Neil Tennant (“Joseph, Better You Than Me”), Wild Light & Mariachi El Bronx (“¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!”), Jimmy Kimmel (“Joel the Lump of Coal”), and Ryan Pardey & Richard Dreyfuss (“Dirt Sledding”).
