Elton John not enough, The Killers need a Pet Shop Boy

Neil Tennant helps out on Christmas single

You might think the five combined songwriting minds of The Killers and Elton John would be enough to bang out a Christmas hit. But you'd be wrong. The band 'hit a wall' while recording at producer Stuart Price's house, where, coincidently, Pet Shop Boys stopped by to visit. Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant saved the day…

"We'd hit a block, and Neil came upstairs," Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers told Planet Sound. "Within moments, he came up with a great line about 'Going to the carpenter's shop'."

The song, called Joseph, Better You Than Me, is still expected for an early December release.
