Queens Of The Stone Age New Album Reunites ‘Songs For The Deaf’ Lineup

Written by Marc Zanotti on January 29, 2013

Queens Of The Stone Age have announced that their old friend singer-songwriter Mark Lanegan will feature on the upcoming QOTSA album. Posting the news on their Facebook page, QOTSA wrote, “Lanegan came by. He didn’t say much, but he sang good.”

As noted by NME, being that Dave Grohl and bassist Nick Oliveri are already onboard, the addition of Lanegan means the band roster from 2002’s Songs for the Deaf (as seen above) has reunited.

The aforementioned Facebook post also name-drops QOTSA members Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita and Mikey ‘Shoes’ Shuman. Along with the help of Trent Reznor, the guesting of Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears (who Tweeted pics himself working with QOTSA) and, of course, Josh Homme, that means fans should be in for one epic album.

In a handwritten letter submitted to MOJO last year, QOTSA described the album as somewhat euphoric, writing that “the record sounds like running in a dream.”

There’s no way we could have prepared for the journey up the river that is this album. In our grand plan, we envisioned our lives and recordings running like clockwerk [sic]. However, the reality has been manic and unpredictable.

These songs aren’t recollections of times we had. They are depictions of what we are going through in real time. It means even a bad event can turn into an unforgettable song. At least for us, HA. The record sound like running in a dream inside a codeine cabaret.
