The Killers have announced a Dec. 8 release date for their best-of compilation Rebel Diamonds.
The album will bring together in chronological order tracks from the band's 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, followed by two Sam's Town tracks, three entries from 2008's Day & Age, two more from Battle Born, one Wonderful, Wonderful song, three Imploding the Mirage songs, and two tracks from 2021's Pressure Machine. The album closes with the band’s recent singles "Boy" and "Your Side of Town," as well as a new song titled "Spirit."
The focus on the Covid-era records was intentional as Flowers explained to Consequence that "they could get a light shined on them that maybe wasn't." Indeed, this compilation showcases five tracks from Imploding the Mirage and Pressure Machine.
Of note is the inclusion of "Mr. Brightside," which has been recently declared as the most streamed track in the UK on Spotify in the past 15 years.
Rebel Diamonds is available for pre-order on the bands website, in several physical variants, including Exclusive Vinyl (2-disc 140 gram black vinyl with double gatefold jacket and 24-page booklet); Standard CD and Limited Edition 4-disc 140 gram 45RPM vinyl).
