Matador RecordsThis week, Queens of the Stone Age released a new song called “The Way You Used to Do,” the first single from the band’s forthcoming album Villains. Speaking about the story behind the track to NME, frontman Josh Homme says it has a pretty simple meaning.
“It’s about scr*wing,” Homme says. Well, then.
As for how “The Way You Used to Do” represents the rest of Villains, Homme says every song on the album has a “shared philosophy.”
“Which has always been my philosophy, but it seems ever more urgent,” he explains. “And it’s that now is all you’ll ever get. You need to not wait…do whatever you want to do now.”
Villains will be released August 25.
