It’s been five years since The Killers released their last album Battle Born, but the wait for new music may finally be over!

According to NME the band have been working on a new album since last September with none other than U2 producer Jacknife Lee, and have revealed that the band are ‘nearly there’ with their latest instalment.

Speaking to the magazine backstage before their set at the Pa’l Norte festival in Mexico, drummer Ronnie Vannucci revealed that the band had struggled to reinvent themselves.

“We have a problem with taking two steps forward and one step back, so that makes it take longer. We keep asking ourselves: ‘What does a four- piece band do? How do you keep it fresh?’ It’s a constant exercise in experimentation.”

Fans can expect to hear a different side to the band with front man Brandon Flowers saying the new songs were ‘the heaviest thing they’ve ever done‘.

The lads also confirmed they would be performing some of the new material at their upcoming headline show at London’s Hyde Park where they’ll be joined by the likes of Elbow, Tears For Fears and White Lies.

So, if you’re lucky enough to have a ticket, get ready for a sneaky preview of what’s to come!

While we all know the occasional Grinch, by and large Christmas tends to bring out the best in people.

This observation is as applicable to celebrities as it is lay people, as The Killers have just released a new holiday album to help raise funds for Bono’s charity (RED), an organisation which aims to eradicate AIDS in Africa.

According to Rolling Stone, Don’t Waste Your Wishes features songs which the band previously released in support of (RED) as well as a newly recorded cover of Bing Crosby’s I’ll be Home for Christmas.

The album – which is exclusively available on iTunes and Apple Music – features Elton John, Jimmy Kimmel and a former teacher of band frontman Brandon Flowers who taught the musician the meaning of Crosby’s famed Christmas track.

A limited edition Don’t Waste Your Wishes CD will also be sold online from December 9.

This sounds pretty good, we reckon!

The Killers' frontman, Brandon Flowers, sang a little bit from Iggy Azalea's summer hit, Fancy, at this year's V Festival and, well, he killed it!

Then again, is there any song that man couldn't make sound amazing?! 

The interpretive dance by drummer, Ronnie Vennucci, is by far our favourite part though.
