Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has remixed Mark Lanegan Band‘s new track, ‘Sad Lover’.
Visit Rolling Stone to listen to the song, the original of which features on Lanegan’s new EP, ‘No Bells On Sunday’. Speaking about the remix, Lanegan said, “Josh Homme channelled the ghost of ’80s new wave for this mix.”
Earlier this summer Josh Homme was joined onstage at London’s Royal Festival Hall by Mark Lanegan at a special solo acoustic show as part of this year’s Meltdown festival. The set featured a number of covers, including Dean Martin’s ‘Memories Are Made Of This’, Marty Wilde’s ‘Bad Boy’ and ‘Dark As A Dungeon’, made famous by Johnny Cash when he, as Homme explained, “played it in jail to a bunch of convicts.” Homme also played a new song called ‘Villains Of Circumstance’.
Queens Of The Stone Age will co-headline Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend with Paramore. They join Arctic Monkeys and Blink-182 on the top of the bill. It will be both Queens Of The Stone Age and Paramore’s only UK festival appearances of 2014.
