The Queens of the Stone Age man flogs 'Magic Hour' in joke ad
Scroll down to watch Homme present the tongue-in-cheek clip, in which he says the album is "dedicated to get you on the dancefloor and keep you on the dancefloor. Forever." He also calls the record a "combination of rhythm and romance like you’ve never heard before".
'Magic Hour' features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Diplo, BoysNoize's Alex Rihda and Azealia Banks, as well as Calvin Harris, who co-produced the lead single 'Only The Horses' along with frontman Jake Shears. Speaking about the album, Shears said: "It's a sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop. It style-hops all over the place unabashedly."
Earlier today Scissor Sisters announced a UK and Ireland tour for October. The gigs kick off at Dublin's Olympia venue on October 1 and run until October 23, when the band headline London's Roundhouse venue.
