Queens of the Stone Age Announce New Album In Times New Roman…, Share “Emotion Sickness”: Stream

Queens of the Stone Age have announced In Times New Roman…, their first album since 2017’s VillainsThe LP is out June 16th via Matador Records, while lead single “Emotion Sickness” is out now.

In Times New Roman… was recorded at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La studio, as well as QOTSA frontman Josh Homme’s Pink Duck. While Villains had a funk groove thanks to Mark Ronson, the band produced its follow-up on their own, with Mark Rankin handling its mixing. The record will be available on streaming, CD, and a variety of colored vinyl, and pre-orders are ongoing.

“Emotion Sickness” feels like a natural progression for Queens of the Stone Age, who over time have paired their growling guitars with a whimsical swing in their step rather than a hard rock scream. “Use once and destroy/ Single servings of pain/ A dose of emotion sickness I just can’t shake,” Homme sings in the off-kilter first verse. By the chorus, however, the song comes together for a seamless melody and a sense that the artist has accepted his fate — whatever it may be. “People come and go on the breeze,” he croons. “For a whole life?/ Possibly.” It’s an interesting line to hear in Homme’s first song since his highly publicized custody battle with ex-wife/Distillers singer Brody Dalle, which has been marred by restraining orders and mutual allegations of abuse.
