The Killers Team Up with M83’s Anthony Gonzalez on New Single “Shot at the Night”

“Shot at the Night” might not be either the band’s or Gonzalez’s best work, but it’s a promising direction for Brandon Flowers and company.

The Killers, Shot at the Night

With just four albums and about as many recognizable hits under their belts, the Killers have announced plans for a greatest hits collection. Direct Hits (the cover is a bullseye—get it?) drops November 11th, and will feature Hot Fuss tracks like “Mr. Brightside” and “Somebody Told Me,” as well as a new Calvin Harris remix of “When You Were Young,” the lead single from 2006’s Sam’s Town. The album will also boast two new songs: “Just Another Girl,” produced by Stuart Price, who was at the helm of 2008’s Day & Age, and “Shot at the Night,” recorded with M83’s Anthony Gonzalez, who was reportedly recommended to the band by their record label. The sparkly “Shot at the Night” immediately announces itself as a Gonzalez track, but it also recalls the Killers’ past gospel-infused efforts. It might not be either the band’s or Gonzalez’s best work, but it’s a promising direction for Brandon Flowers and company.
