In what came as a surprise, The Killers premiered a second video from their compilation album 'Sawdust'. The rock band released a clip for their cover of Joy Division's 'Shadowplay' that also becomes the soundtrack of British film 'Control'.

Since the movie is a biopic for Joy Division's frontman, Ian Curtis, the band share some of their shots in the video with excerpts from the 2007 movie.

'Shadowplay' has been covered by many artists, but The Killer's version has stood out among the crowd. Upon its digital release last month, it peaked at #68 on Billboard Hot 100 chart.

'Sawdust' is a compilation from the band containing rarities, B-sides and unreleased tracks. Earlier this month, the band released a music video for its first single 'Tranquilizer' that also features Lou Reed.
