The Killers have unveiled a teaser of the video for 'Shot At The Night'. Watch the trailer below.

The clip shows a romantic view of a waitress working a casino in the Battle Born rockers' hometown of Las Vegas, before stating that the full video for the single will be unveiled tomorrow (Friday 27 September).

The video was directed by by Roboshobo (né Robert Schober) and stars Bella Heathcote and Max Minghella.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about the video, frontman Brandon Flowers said: 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 treatment was different and classy, and he pulled it off."

The band will release their best-of album on 11 November, and it will include new, M83-produced single 'Shot At The Night' and unheard track, 'Just Another Girl', produced by Stuart Price. The full tracklist for the album is below, and Flowers has spoken of how he feels the band will progress after the release of Direct Hits.

"This record feels like a great way to clean everything up and move onto the next thing," says Flowers in an interview with NME, stating that in no way does Direct Hits signal the end of The Killers. "I’m always writing, it’s like second nature to me now, but I’m always analysing what I’ve got, and doubts can start creeping into your head. But I’m really happy with the songs we’ve got to add to the list."

The full tracklist of Direct Hits is below:

'Mr Brightside'
'Somebody Told Me'
'Smile Like You Mean It'
'All These Things That I’ve Done'
'When You Were Young'
'Read My Mind'
'For Reasons Unknown'
'Human' 'Spaceman'
'A Dustland Fairytale'
'Runaways'
'Miss Atomic Bomb'
'The Way It Was'
'Shot At The Night'
'Just Another Girl'

Deluxe Version tracks:
Mr Brightside (Original Demo)
When You Were Young (Calvin Harris remix)
Be Still

Flowers also spoke highly of the band's work with Anthony Gonzalez of M83, who produced 'Shot At The Night' and is best known for his band's 'Midnight City' hit.

"He’s one of these new skool producers," Flowers adds. "He’s a technical wizard, but you can’t discount his musicality. A lot of people do, because of the involvement of computers, but he's a real musician, too.

"He and Stuart Price may be known for working on the digital side of things, but they’re also two of the most musical guys I’ve ever met."
