The Killers have unveiled the official music video for “Shot At The Night,” one of two new tracks included in the group’s upcoming greatest hits collection, Direct Hits. The clip stars Australian actress Bella Heathcote of last year’s Dark Shadows and British actor Max Minghella from 2010’s The Social Network. Heathcote plays a housekeeper working in Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan resort who shares an exciting and romantic night out on the town with Minghella after almost hitting him with her car.
Frontman Brandon Flowers said about the clip, “We always get a ton of treatments for videos where raunchiness and debauchery are at the forefront, regardless of what fire the song is stoking. We liked that Robert‘s (Schober, director) treatment was different and classy, and he pulled it off.”
Shot At The Night” was produced by Anthony Gonzalez, a.k.a. M83.
In addition to that and another new song called “Just Another Girl,” Direct Hits will contain all the singles from the Vegas-based Killers’ four studio albums.
The set is due out on November 11th. A “Fan Deluxe Edition” will include the original demo of “Mr. Brightside,” a new remix of “When You Were Young,” a documentary on the Killers’ career and all the songs on five 10-inch vinyl records.
The group’s most recent collection of all-new material was last year’s Battle Born.
