Queens of the Stone Age have shared another new song from their upcoming album, In Times New Roman…, which is scheduled to be released on June 16 via Matador Records. The recently released track is titled “Carnavoyeur” and arrives with an accompanying lyric video.
The single follows the announcement of the album–which marks the band’s first in six years and their eighth ever–earlier this month and the release of the project’s lead single, “Emotion Sickness.” Notably, ahead of the album’s release, the band has planned “Midnight Club” album release parties, which will take place at record stores and bars in 23 countries. These events will feature giveaways of merchandise, limited-edition vinyl, and, in select locations, signed items and concert tickets.
Like the track that preceded it, “Carnavoyeur” is lush with vocal harmonies from frontman Josh Homme, driving percussion and many moments where sonic lines blend – the light is enveloped by the dark and vice versa.
