It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in L.A.! For the past eight years, The Killers have released a Christmas single on World Aids Day in partnership with Product (RED). The Lodge annually teams up with The Killers to help give back and support this great cause. All of the song’s proceeds are then donated to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS.
This year’s holiday track titled “Christmas in L.A.” was mastered at The Lodge by Emily Lazar and assisted by Rich Morales. The Lodge has happily donated their mastering services to the band for all of their annual holiday singles since 2011. Holiday tracks mastered at The Lodge include “Boots,” “Feel it My Bones,” and “Christmas in L.A.”
This year, The Killers enlisted the help of folk rockers Dawes, as well as Owen Wilson and Harry Dean Stanton for the music video. The Killer’s front man, Brandon Flowers told the U.K.’s Metro, “The song is about a struggling actor in L.A. who misses the traditional Christmas.”

In addition to “Christmas in L.A.”, the band recently released their very first greatest hits compilation, Direct Hits. The album is comprised of tracks from all four previous studio albums plus several new additions including “Shot At The Night,” which was produced by M83’s Anthony Gonzales and “Just Another Girl,” produced by Stuart Price, both of which were mastered at The Lodge.
