News on Christmas single with Killers...

The Killers have confirmed they are releasing a Christmas single with Elton John.

The Las Vegas group previously said they were unsure whether the track would be ready for the festive season but are now preparing to head into the studio with the 'Rocket Man' singer to begin work on 'Better You Than Me' and say they expect to start work very soon.

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci revealed: "I have a sneaky suspicion Elton is just going to want to get us in a room and just do a straight recording."

The release will be the third seasonal single in a row that the 'Mr. Brightside' hitmakers have released.

Proceeds from download-only previous efforts 'Great Big Sled' and 'Don't Shoot Me Santa' were donated to charity.

The Killers release their next album 'Day and Age' on November 24.
