The Killers release teaser clip for 'Shot At The Night' video - watch

The full-length video for the band's new song will be released tomorrow (September 27)

The Killers have released a teaser clip of the video for their brand new song, 'Shot At The Night'.

Click above to watch the excerpt, which stars Australian actress Bella Heathcote [Dark Shadows, Not Fade Away] as a cleaner in a casino. The clip also states that English actor Max Minghella [The Social Network] will appear in the full-length video, which will premiere tomorrow (September 27).

Speaking about the Robert Schober-directed video to Rolling Stone, frontman Brandon Flowers said: "We always get a ton of treatments for videos where raunchiness and debauchery are at the forefront, regardless of what fire the song is stoking. We liked that Robert's treatment was different and classy, and he pulled it off."

The new song features on the band's forthcoming Best Of compilation, which is titled 'Direct Hits' and will be released on November 11. The 15-song compilation will also feature another new song, called 'Just Another Girl', which sees the band reunite with longtime collaborator Stuart Price. 'Shot At The Night' meanwhile will be released as a single on November 4, and is produced by M83's Anthony Gonzalez.

Speaking exclusively to NME, frontman Brandon Flowers said that releasing a Best Of was another significant milestone for the band, who recently played Wembley Stadium. He said: "This record feels like a great way to clean everything up and move onto the next thing."

He also revealed that 'Direct Hits' has been under discussion since the start of the year, although the prospect of writing new songs for the record "sort of threw me for a curveball. I'm always writing, it's like second nature to me now, but I'm always analysing what I've got, and doubts can start creeping into your head. But I'm really happy with the songs we've got to add to the list."

The tracklisting for 'Direct Hits' is:

'Mr Brightside'
'Somebody Told Me'
'Smile Like You Mean It'
'All These Things That I’ve Done'
