In 2008, The Killers began an annual tradition of releasing a charity single on December 1 to coincide with World Aids Day, and this year is no different. This year’s song is titled “Christmas in LA”. The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers told Metro, “the song's about a struggling actor in LA who misses the traditional Christmas”. The accompanying music video will premiere next month and Flowers gave a small insight into what we can expect to see: “We got Owen Wilson to do the video, and there are cameos from Harry Dean Stanton (The Green Mile) and an animated (singer-songwriter) Warren Zevon, which is bad-ass. I’m so excited about it – talk about the stars aligning.” Flowers went on to add: “You’ll never see us smile or let our hair down as much as when we do the Christmas stuff. It always turns out to be a lot of work but it’s really refreshing.” He then spoke about previous years releases and the Red Project. “What’s nice is that it happens to coincide with World Aids Day, which is December 1, so it made sense to write Christmas songs to raise money for Red Project. This is our eighth year without doing any covers and we’ve done all types of Christmas songs, from love stories to The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball, and a Santa that’s out to getcha.” Due to December 1 falling on a Sunday, “Christmas in LA” will be released Monday, December 2.
