The Killers can now call themselves a greatest hits band. The Las Vegas-based alternative rockers have announced that they’ll unleash a collection of their best hits on Nov. 11. “Direct Hits” will offer 15 popular Killers songs, including the omnipresent singles “Somebody Told Me,” “Mr. Brightside,” “When You Were Young” and “Human.”

The upcoming greatest hits set will also pack to new tunes: “Just Another Girl” and “Shot at the Night,” the latter which was recorded Anthony Gonzales of M83. “Shot at the Night” is also currently available on iTunes. Find the full track listing below.
