John + Tennant Team Up For Killers Christmas Song
U.S. rockers THE KILLERS have recruited a string of pop heavyweights to help write a Christmas track - including SIR ELTON JOHN and PET SHOP BOYS star NEIL TENNANT.
The Mr. Brightside hitmakers have high hopes for the festive tune, and hope to seal its success by roping in some of music's biggest talents to help pen the song.
And Sir Elton revealed the song has been a mammoth undertaking, with him and Tennant both providing catchy verses to combine with the band's chorus.
He says, "The track is called 'Joseph' and I wrote it with Brandon (Flowers) the last time I was here, and they've been recording it all throughout different places in the world.
"I think Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys has been writing a verse, so it's quite a collaboration."
Joseph will be the third consecutive Christmas track by the band; they released A Great Big Sled in 2006 and Don't Shoot Me Santa a year later.
