The Killers "Christmas In L.A. (feat. Dawes)" (2013)

Every year at this time artists roll out new recordings of classic holiday tunes or newly written ones in the hope of becoming a new Christmas/holiday time classic - a la Mariah Carey's 1994 runaway smash hit single "All I Want for Christmas Is You" off her Merry Christmas album of that year (in 2010 she released the sequel Merry Christmas II You). So for this holiday season here are four brand new Christmas themed music songs and accompanying videos. They include the above latest Christmas time charity raising song/video from the ever generous Las Vegas rockers The Killers who, for every Christmas since 2006, have teamed up with the RED organization and recorded a song specifically to raise funds (100%) for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. "Christmas in L.A." is the latest song/video from Brandon Flowers and crew with a feature from Dawes on the track plus the voices of Harry Dean Stanton and Owen Wilson - the latter of whom also appears in the video. Partly animated the clip captures what its like for Wilson to wake up alone in an L.A. apartment on Christmas morning. In addition to this new Killers Christmas track below are three other brand new holiday season song/video recordings including from RnB singers K. Michelle and Tyra B, and pop singer Asher Monroe. Whether any of these songs will follow Mariah Carey's good fortune and stick around for future Christmas seasons remains to be seen.


K. Michelle  "Christmas Night" (2013)


Tyra B "It Ain't Christmas Without You Here" (2013)


Asher Monroe "Christmas Is Here To Stay" (2013)
