Queens Of The Stone Age announce new album Villains, hear lead single 'The Way You Used To Do' now

Queens Of The Stone Age have announced full details of their new album, which is to be titled Villains.

Produced by Mark Ronson and co-produced by Mark Rankin and mixed by Alan Moulder, the album is seventh album of the band's career. You can hear the album's lead-off single 'The Way You Used To Do' by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Speaking about the record, QOTSA frontman Joshua Homme said: "The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question 'what do we sound like now?' If you can’t make a great first record, you should just stop—but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn’t evolve, you become a parody of that original sound."

Explaining the title, Homme added: "The title Villains isn’t a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It’s simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened… Everyone needs someone or something to rail against—their villain—same as it ever was. You can’t control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go."


The tracklisting for Villains is as follows:

'Feet Don’t Fail Me'
'The Way You Used To Do'
'Domesticated Animals'
'Head Like A Haunted House'
'Un-Reborn Again'
'The Evil Has Landed'
'Villains Of Circumstance'
