Elton Confirms Xmas Killers Project
Sir Elton John, creator of Christmas classics such as `Step Into Christmas` and `Ho Ho Ho, Who`d Want To Be A Turkey At Christmas` is about to record a new Christmas song with The Killers.
The song is called ‘Joseph, Better You Than Me’. Recording is planned for this week and the song will be available in the first week of December.
The Killers have made a tradition of the Christmas song. Last year they released ‘Don’t Shoot Me Santa’. In 2006, their Christmas song was ‘A Great Big Sled’.
he song will be the third year in a row that the band have released a Chritmas single. Their previous two - 'A Great Big Sled' and 'Don't Shoot Me Santa' - were download only charity songs.
The Killers drummer Ronnie Vannuci told the BBC, ““I have a sneaky suspicion Elton is just going to want to get us in a room and just do a straight recording.”
The new Killers album ‘Day and Age’ will be released at the end of this month.
