In other QOTSA news, the band looks like they will be releasing some new tunes in 2014. According to a story in http://metro.co.uk, Homme says the band have ‘more than enough songs’ for a new album, despite releasing their last just a few months ago.
Asked by Rolling Stone if fans could expect a new LP soon, he replied: ‘Absolutely. We have more than enough songs. We’re booked ’til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going.’
He also said that the secret to a successful recording session isn’t being a control freak but relinquishing some control.”
‘When it’s time to make music, that’s about getting lost for me,’ he explained. ‘To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who’s casually in control. You’re feeling around in the dark for something that feels good. As long as you’re not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment.’
…Like Clockwork was a critical and commercial hit for the band in 2013, reaching No. 2 in the UK album chart and No. 1 on the US Billboard 200.
Later in the year, Homme will make a guest appearance in hipster-lampooning sketch show Portlandia.
