After tons of hint dropping, the Josh Homme-led Queens of the Stone Age have released details for their 7th studio album, Villains. The album was produced by pop maestro Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Adele) and you can already hear his influence on the snippet of lead single “Feet Don’t Fail Me,” heard in this hilarious new clip directed by Liam Lynch.

In a recent interview, Homme described the record as “uptempo.” Like Clockwork (TLW’s album of the year in 2013) was “about making it through, this time we’ve made it through the other side and we’re ready to roll.”
Ronson and Homme last worked together on Lady Gaga’s Joanne record last year.
The band also has some dates listed for the summer, including a headline gig in September at Chicago’s Riot Fest.
