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.
