The band's third studio album will be given the special treatment later this year
The Killers will mark the 10th anniversary of their album ‘Day & Age’ with a special reissue next month, it has been confirmed.
The record was the band’s third studio album and followed the release of ‘Hot Fuss’ (2004), ‘Sam’s Town’ (2006), and the b-sides and rarities compilation ‘Sawdust’ (2007). ‘Day & Age’ was nominated for Best International Album at the 2009 BRIT Awards and for Best Album and Best Album Artwork at the NME Awards in the same year.
A special anniversary edition of the record will be released on December 14 and will see the album pressed onto double vinyl for the first time. It will include three bonus tracks – ‘Forget About What I Said’, ‘A Crippling Blow’, and ‘Joy Ride (Night Version)’. All three were previously released as b-sides.

The reissue will be available on standard 180g black vinyl and limited-edition silver vinyl. Both will be released in hardcover cases with patterned foil finishes.
The band have also shared three “eSingles” ahead of the reissue. You can stream remixes of ‘Spaceman’ and ‘Human’, as well as access ‘Joy Ride (Night Version)’ for the first time digitally, on Spotify and Apple Music now.
The tracklist for the new edition of ‘Day & Age’ is as follows:
‘A Dustland Fairytale’
‘This Is Your Life’
‘I Can’t Say’
‘The World We Live In’
‘Goodnight, Travel Well’
‘A Crippling Blow’
‘Forget About What I Said’
‘Joy Ride (Night Version)’
Meanwhile, The Killers guitarist Dave Keuning is set to release his debut solo album ‘Prismism’ on January 25. Speaking to NME last month, the musician described the record as “personal”.
“Some of it is about my personal life, some of it is complete fiction, and some of it was just that I needed something to rhyme with the previous line,” he said. “It was my first time writing lyrics. I had this thing where it came quite naturally.”
He continued: “This album is me doing everything, and doing it at home and calling all the shots because I always wanted to call the shots, necessarily, just because it was me making the record. A lot of [these songs] would not be on a Killers record – maybe, maybe some would – but I think that most of them would not.”
