Killers and Elton John to release Christmas single

The duet will be titled 'Joseph, Better You Than Me'

The Killers and Elton John are teaming up to release a Christmas single.

Although nothing has been recorded yet, and is subject to change, a tentative title ‘Joseph, Better You Than Me’ has been mentioned.

The single will be released in December, although a final release date has not been set, reports The Sun.

The track will not feature on the Las Vegas band’s forthcoming third album, ‘Day And Age’, which is scheduled to be released on November 24.

The track will be The Killers‘ third festival single, after 2006’s ‘A Great Big Sled’ and last year’s ‘Don’t Shoot Me Santa’, which were released as download charity singles.

The band have previously told NME.COM they hope to release a Christmas single annually, eventually having enough seasonal tracks for a Christmas album.

Meanwhile, today (September 23) it was announced that The Killers will play the London Royal Albert Hall on November 3.
