Queen Of The Stone Age Busy With New Album
Queens Of The Stone Age have sent an update from the studio to say how pleased they are with progress on their new album. "The Queens are deep into making the new album. Locked away in the desert," the update said, adding: "It. Sounds. F--kin. Killer." The band entered the studio shortly after a June appearance at Glastonbury Festival to work on a followup to 2007's "Era Vulgaris". Frontman Josh Homme originally planned to complete the album by the end of the year, but he won't rush for anyone. "We're at a weird moment where we really don't feel like we have anything to prove," he told the BBC in May (via Spinner). "We just want to play to the people that are into us and we want to play right at them." Describing the songwriting process for the new album, guitarist Dean Fertita said: "It's very much still Homme's band, but I think all of us really feel like we've found our space in it and can contribute to it as well." Those riff-heavy QOTSA albums can never come soon enough, but the band did manage to find time to record a song for a 4-disc Bob Dylan cover compilation. "Chimes Of Freedom: The Songs Of Bob Dylan" will raise money for Amnesty International and includes contributions from the likes of Tom Morello, My Morning Jacket, Adele, Joe Perry and Dave Matthews Band. You can buy it here. Listen to the QOTSA version of "Outlaw Blues" right here, thanks to Antiquiet.
