Queens of the Stone Age unleashes new single “Carnavoyeur”: Stream

by admin

The Queens of the Stone Age return with new single “Carnavoyeur,” the latest sample from their upcoming album In Times New Roman…

“Carnavoyeur”, the follow-up to the album’s new single “Emotion Sickness”, is built on a steady rock groove, punctuated by staccato, staccato strings. As the track progresses, it becomes more complex and layered, culminating in an all-encompassing vocal cacophony near the end complete with striking strings and some psychedelic production.

Thematically, “Carnavoyeur” seems to reckon with the natural ebbs and flows of life, finding strength in accepting the things that can’t be changed: “When there’s nothing I can do, I smile,” vocalist Josh Homme sings in a darkly sweet voice that sounds equal parts sinister. And tuning in as he watches the world around him turn to dust. “We live, we die, we fail, we rise / I am glad, so I hear the farewells.” Listen to “Carnavoyeur” below.


In Times New Roman… It will be released on June 16 via Matador Records. It marks Queens of the Stone Age’s first album since 2017 scoundrels, Plus the first battle since Homme’s highly publicized custody battle with ex-wife/Distillers singer Brody Dalle.

The band has several festival appearances on its calendar, including Boston Calling and Riot Fest in Chicago, Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, and Louder Than Life in Louisville. Tickets are on sale here.
