NEW YORK (Billboard) - New albums by the Killers, Ludacris and Kanye West will be released a day earlier than planned, on Monday November 24, to capitalize on the Thanksgiving shopping weekend, their Island Def Jam label said.

Each project has already spawned a hit. The Killers' "Human," drawn from the album "Day & Age," is No. 6 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart.

Ludacris' "One More Drink" co-starring T-Pain is No. 34 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs; it comes from "Theater of the Mind."

West's "Love Lockdown," from "808s & Heartbreak," has already peaked at No. 3 on the flagship Hot 100 single chart.
