Calvin Harris has posted a preview of his EDM-style remix of The Killers' 'When You Were Young' to SoundCloud – click below to listen.

The Scottish hitmaker's version of the Las Vegas band's 2006 hit will appear forthcoming Best Of compilation 'Direct Hits', which will be released on November 11. The 15-song compilation also features two new songs, the recently revealed 'Shot At The Night' and a track called 'Just Another Girl', which sees the band reunite with longtime collaborator Stuart Price. 'Shot At The Night' 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".

'Mr Brightside'
'Somebody Told Me'
