The Killers celebrate ten years of music, with their first hits collection, appropriately titled Direct Hits.

A deluxe CD+DVD edition is also available which comes with three bonus tracks on the audio disc, one of which is the original demo of Mr Brightside. The DVD features a never-before-seen Killers documentary. In addition, Island Records are creating a Super Deluxe Edition which will be sold exclusively via their online store. This repeats the content of the standard CD+DVD deluxe edition, and adds a unique collection of 5 x 10? vinyl records featuring all the singles on the album. Direct Hits will be released on 11 November 2013.
