QOTSA aim to record this year
Queens Of The Stone Age are determined to record their seventh album later this year in an attempt to keep hold of the momentum built up since the release of …Like Clockwork in 2013.
Frontman Josh Homme doesn’t want to leave five years between records like he did after the Era Vulgaris. And the notorious control freak says he’s looking forward to letting things go in the studio.
Homme tells Rolling Stone: We have more than enough songs. We’re booked till September but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going.
“When it’s time to make music, that’s about getting lost for me. To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who’s casually in control. You’re feeling around in the dark for something that feels good. As long as you’re not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment.”
Last year Homme admitted he might have jinxed QOTSA’s 2014 studio record by predicting it would be a more upbeat companion piece to …Like Clockwork. He said: “In a way, I probably guaranteed that it was be anything except that. This is the problem about talking about something before you do it – you jinx the living hell out of it.”
