Dirt Sledding

Album: Single Release Only (2015)
  • The Christmas single has become a tradition for The Killers. This is their tenth festive tune in a series that started in 2006 with "A Great Big Sled." Frontman Brandon Flowers told The Sun: "It allows us to be playful. Sometimes it gets so serious. You feel this responsibility to make this great record. But the Christmas songs don't feel like that."
  • The song features a spoken-word part performed by Jaws, Close Encounters and Mr. Holland's Opus actor Richard Dreyfus.
  • Like all of the other Killers Christmas songs, all of the proceeds are donated to AIDS charities as part of the Product Red campaign.
  • The "Dirt Sledding" video was directed by Las Vegas native Matthew Gray Gubler, who also filmed the band's "Don't Shoot Me Santa" clip. It was shot at Sandy Valley Ranch in Sandy Valley, Nevada.

    The third in a trilogy with "Don't Shoot Me Santa" and "I Feel It in My Bones," like the others the visual stars former Killers tour manager Ryan Pardey as a crazy Santa.
