Queens Of The Stone Age Premieres New Album’s Second Single, Lyric Video

May 31 — Queens of the Stone Age is giving audiences another preview of its new album, In Times New Roman.

The band premiered the album’s new single, ‘Carnavoyeur‘ and its lyric video Wednesday. The song’s arrangement is a stark contrast to that of the album’s lead single, ‘Emotion Sickness,‘ which the band premiered early this month. Where that song is a lively, upbeat familiar style stoner/fuzz work from the band, the group’s new single is more contemplative in its mid-tempo approach. There is something about the song — perhaps the guitars, or the keyboard line or maybe even both — that make the song comparable in its sound and style to works from the likes of Depeche Mode. It really is an interesting departure of style for the band but fully engaging and entertaining because of that surprising approach.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release announcing the premiere of the new single and video. The lyrics provided in the video hint at a message of perseverance, of not giving up in life. That is just this critic’s interpretation.

Speaking of the song’s lyric video, it features the song’s lyrics mixed into a decidedly psychedelic background as the song plays over the unique visualization.

Both of the singles premiered so far from Queens of the Stone Age are featured in the band’s forth coming album, In Times New Roman, which is scheduled for release June 16 through Matador Records.
