The Killers have a longstanding tradition of releasing Christmas themed singles and this year the song is called “Christmas in LA.” The song tells the story of a up-and-coming actor who is struggling in Los Angeles. The song features Dawes on vocals.

The music video features Owen Wilson as the song’s protagonist, including a spoken work intro from Wilson and longtime friend Harry Dean Stanton (who is also mentioned in the song’s lyrics). The video includes animated segments that include an animated version of Wilson. It’s a beautiful video, though Wilson seems at least a decade too old to play this role (even if his movie star persona didn’t immediately take you out of believing him in the role).
