[FIRST LISTEN] The Killers "The Cowboy Christmas Ball" Holiday Single

As I reported this weekend, The Killers set some aside during their current studio sessions to record a special holiday single to benefit charity to keep up with their annual tradition. After "A Great Big Sled" (2006), "Don't Shoot Me Santa" (2007), "Joseph, Better You Than Me" (2008), "Happy Birthday Guadalupe" (2009) and "Boots" (2010), the group now presents "The Cowboy Christmas Ball."

"The Cowboy Christmas Ball" is a cover of Michael Martin Murphy's 1991 original that the Vegas four have updated with some new lyrics to reflect their Nevada roots. Featuring wintery holiday chimes and talk about life in the great outdoors, "The Cowboy Christmas Ball" is a joyous piece of Americana that fits the season perfectly.

All proceeds of the single will benefit the RED Campaign that fights HIV/AIDS in Africa. Make sure to purchase the single when it drops in a digital store near you tomorrow to join The Killers in raising awareness and funds. In addition to purchasing the single, you can also design an online quilt and pledge to share the story about the fight against HIV/AIDS around the world with friends and family.
