The Killers follow the massive success of their #1 album Sam's Town by announcing the release of a new single, Bones, on November 27th. The single comes accompanied by a video by director Tim Burton, in his first ever foray into the world of the pop promo.
Sam's Town, currently in its third week at the top of the UK chart, has also been a huge success throughout the world, reaching the top spot in four countries so far and only narrowly missing out on a #1 in the Las Vegas residents' home land. It also earns The Killers the accolade of being the highest selling digital album release ever. The record has been widely lauded as a massive leap forward for the band, an ambitious widescreen leap on from 2004's 5 million selling debut, Hot Fuss. The first single to be taken from the album, When You Were Young, was released in September and gave the band their highest single chart to date, peaking at #2.
