Elton's New Xmas Song Includes Killers & Pet Shop Boys
Elton John has revealed that he is currently in the studio with The Killers recording a Christmas song, with Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys to contribute a verse to the brand new track.
During an interview on Australian radio on Monday (November 10), the superstar singer discussed his plans to record with The Killers while he is in performing in their home town of Las Vegas.
“I’m doing their Christmas single,” John told the radio show’s host. “In fact I’m going into the studio tomorrow (Saturday) to put my voice on the track.”
News of the collaboration broke last week after The Killers announced they would be recording their annual Christmas song with the superstar.
“The track is called ‘Joseph’ and I wrote it with Brandon (Flowers) the last time I was here, and they’ve been recording it all throughout different places in the world,” John says.
“I think Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys has been writing a verse, so it’s quite a collaboration.”
