QOTSA: Villains and Some Things You Don’t Know
Queens of the Stone Age are set to release their 7th Studio album “Villains” this month. We can expect something completely different to the rest of the QOTSA as it sounds like producer Mark Ronson has made the band sound danceable and dark. You can also hear some of fallout from the Post Port Depression album that Homme released with Iggy Pop in March of last year.
Ronson has worked with Bruno Mars, Adele and Amy Winehouse so this should be something completely different from QOTSA.
“I think maybe music people might not understand the vast overlap of the curves between Ronson and Queens,” Homme said. “If you listen to ‘Uptown Funk,’ you hear that tight, kind of vacuous dry sound, and that’s where I wanted to take this new Queens record. I wanted it to be like our record Songs for the Deaf, but looking at it with goggles on underwater – that kind of clarity. Also, he’s as obsessed with drum beats as I am.”

Any way to celebrate the release of the latest QOTSA album we thought we would dig out some Queens facts for you to wrap your head around. “Villains” will be released on the on the 25th of August 2017.
