The Killers have announced plans to play a one-off show for Radio 1 listeners at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The show on 3 November will see the Las Vegas four-piece preview new tracks from their third album Day And Age.

Tickets for the gig, which will be aired live on the night, go on sale at midday on 24 September.

The band's new single Human received its first airplay on Zane Lowe's evening show on 22 September.

'New direction'

"Growing up I had a great video of Morrissey playing at the Royal Albert Hall so we're all real excited about it," said singer Brandon Flowers.

"I've only ever been on the outside of it. I've never actually been in."

Tracks slated to appear on their new record include Spaceman, which the band previewed at Reading and Leeds Festivals over the summer, Losing Touch, I Can't Stay and Goodnight, Travel Well.

On the new single Brandon added: "It is a new direction for us and that song has kept its head above water for two years now.

"It is kind of an old song and it just feels like the right one to release."

Human is out as a digital download on 30 September and their new album will follow on 24 November.
