The Killers – “Shot At The Night” (Prod. M83)

The two bands have already toured together, and now the Killers and M83, two of our finest purveyors of grandly ridiculous blown-out new-wave, have made a song together. The Killers, a band who have always had one hell of a greatest-hits album in them, are now ready to release one. It’s called Direct Hits, and one of the two new tracks included is “Shot At The Night,” which M83’s Anthony Gonzalez produced. It’s just as epic and romantic and unashamed as you’d expect, given the personnel involved. The song debuted on BBC Radio 1 earlier today, and you can hear a radio rip and check out the Direct Hits tracklist below.
