For the past seven years, The Killers have released a Christmas single in support of World AIDS Day, with all sales proceeds benefitting Project (RED) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. This year, the band has added their eighth record, "Christmas In L.A.," and they recruited the help of Owen Wilson, Harry Dean Stanton and folk-rockers Dawes.

A somber tale of an actor (portrayed by Wilson) caught in the whirlwind of endless auditions and holiday solitude, the protagonist yearns to return to the days of Christmas past in his hometown. The video opens with a brief nihilistic exchange between Wilson and Stanton, and ends with a nod to Irving Berlin's "White Christmas."

Not exactly the jolliest of holiday tunes, but the video can be viewed above (via Consequence of Sound), and the single is available for purchase on iTunes.
