The Killers Ronnie Vanucci has spoken about the band's latest Christmas single 'I Feel It In My Bones', set to be released on December 1 to coincide with World Aids Day.

The track, which will raise money for the (RED) campaign which helps fight HIV/ Aids in Africa and was revealed over the weekend, is a festive reworking of a demo from early writing sessions taken from recent LP 'Battle Born'. Speaking to NME about the single, drummer Ronnie Vannucci described the festive offering as "a bit more of a rock song" than their previous seasonal output.

"It was an idea we had and a demo we recorded when we working on 'Battle Born' and it was so good... See what we do is we tend to make all these songs and then put them in a locker and find them way too late," he said. "This song was basically started a while back and we just finished it and changed it into more of a Christmas song. It was mixed by Alan Moulder, he did it when we were over in the UK a couple of weeks ago."

But, whilst the track leans on the heavier sound that the Las Vegas quartet recently returned to, Vannucci is confident it is still a recognisably Christmassy number. "I think it rides a line between Christmas and a 'Battle Born' track, but you'd be surprised what sleigh bells can do to a song!" he laughed.

'I Feel It In My Bones' will also come with a video to accompany it, shot half in the UK on the band's recent arena tour and half in their native Las Vegas. "It's a bit like [previous Christmas track] 'Don't Shoot Me Santa', where Santa comes back with a vengeance – it's that vibe," explains Vannucci of the video concept.

I Feel It In My Bones', is available exclusively via iTunes from Tuesday, December 4. You can listen to the track via Rolling Stone.
