TWELVE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS CAROL COUNTDOWN: THE KILLERS’ NEW CHRISTMAS ALBUM “DON’T WASTE YOUR WISHES” FOR (RED)

rs-the-killers-20a51a57-5f3f-473a-99dc-86e6d7d4d679Annually since 2006 the Killers have released a holiday-themed new single for Bono’s charity (RED), which strives to end aids in Africa. The band has collected all ten songs on a new website and Christmas album Don’t Waste Your Wishes, released on December 9th. Featured guests on the singles include Toni Halliday, Elton John, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Tennant, and Dawes. The songs are melodic, quirky, comic, provocative, some a little dark, some beautifully moving, and the videos for each, always entertaining.

My favorite, “A Great Big Sled,”

“Joel the Lump of Coal”

“The Cowboy’s Christmas Ball”

There’s no video yet for this year’s single “I’ll be Home For Christmas” but here is a link to the website where you can hear it and all ten songs.
