Owen Wilson

“Christmas In L.A.” finds Brandon Flowers in full on Springsteen mode making a sad, grandly orchestrated Christmas tune following a disillusioned actor stuck in the sunny city for the holiday. The actor in the video is Owen Wilson, joined here by a hard drinking Harry Dean Stanton. Switching between live action and animation the Kelly Loosi-directed clip even manages to slip in an animated cameo by Warren Zevon as he looks on his self-titled album. The single, which also features Dawes, will be used to raise money for Red Project in what has become a tradition for the Killers, who have released a charity Christmas song every year since 2006. Watch it below.

“Christmas In L.A.” is available on iTunes and the Killers’ greatest hits album Direct Hits is out now via Island/Mercury.
