The Killers will unveil two new tracks on their 'Direct Hits' album.

The 'Somebody Told Me' band are releasing their first ever greatest hits in November - drawing the biggest tracks from their four studio albums - which will include two new recordings, 'Shot At The Night' and 'Just Another Girl'.

The band have come a long way from their first show in the England - their first outside of North America - in 2003, when they had trouble even fitting on the stage at London's tiny Dublin Castle bar.

Recalling the experience, singer Brandon Flowers told The Sun newspaper: "British bands have had such a huge impact on us, so we were excited at that gig, but really intimidated too. I remember I fell on my ass during 'Jenny Was a Friend of Mine' the stage was so small."

Since then the band - completed by Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. - have sold more than 20 million albums and headlined the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium in London.

A deluxe edition of 'Direct Hits' will also be released, including an original demo of 'Mr Brightside' as well as a new remix of 'When You Were Young' by Calvin Harris.
