The Killers have settled on a name and a release date for the B-sides collection first reported here last month. “Sawdust” will arrive Nov. 13 via Island Def Jam and will feature Lou Reed guesting on a new track titled “Tranquilize.”
The tentative song list includes “All the Pretty Faces” (“When You Were Young” B-side), movie soundtrack tunes “Shadowplay” (a Joy Division cover from Anton Corbijn’s Ian Curtis biopic “Control”) and “Move Away” (“Spider-man 3”), as well as a cover of Mel Tillis’ “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town.
Songs that were written during sessions for 2006’s “Sam’s Town” but didn’t appear on that album are also likely to surface on “Sawdust.”
In related news, the Killers will on Dec. 1 issue their second annual holiday single, “Don’t Shoot Me Santa,” which will raise funds for the RED Campaign.
