Last week, The Killers revealed that Hollywood actor Owen Wilson will feature in the video for their 2013 Christmas single. For the last eight years, the band have released a festive charity single. This year’s, singer Brandon Flowers has confirmed, will be released on December 1 again to coincide with World Aids Day.
Last years’ Christmas single ‘I Feel It In My Bones’ saw the band again team up with their former tour manager Ryan Pardley, who previously appeared in the band’s 2007 Christmas video for ‘Don’t Shoot Me Santa’. Pardley played the role of a ‘bad Santa’ who rides a motorbike in place of Father Christmas’ more traditional sleigh.
