UNICEF & The Killers :: Goodnight, Travel Well

One of my favorite bands, The Killers, have collaborated with UNICEF, MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) and the US Agency for International Development, on a new music video that raises awareness about sex trafficking. The video is for the song ‘Goodnight, Travel Well’ from The Killer’s latest album Day & Age and is directed by David Slade.

The first single off the new album was 'Embers.'

‘I wash two cups and then I remember that you left already…’
