For the past eight years, Vegas-based rockers The Killers have released an original Christmas song and video in early December with proceeds going to support Project Red and the fight against AIDS and TB in Africa. Some of their previous holiday efforts have been awesome, particularly A Great Big Sled (2006) and I Feel It In My Bones (2012). This year's release is called Christmas in L.A. and features the L.A. folk rock band Dawes:
This isn't my favorite of their annual Christmas songs; it's a little depressing, and hits kind of close to home. But they're as reliable as Santa every December, and their commitment to raising money for an important cause is nothing short of awesome. All of their previous Christmas tunes can be had for a song via The Killers website or iTunes, and the (Red) Christmas EP features six of the song collected just for you.
