With a whirlwind of interviews, photoshoots, and TV appearances, promoting a new album can be a tedious process. As they market their latest rock opus, Villains, Queens of the Stone Age have kept things fresh with fun videos, oddball covers, and alternate arrangements of their songs. We witnessed the latter during the band’s TV appearance on Later… with Jools Holland on Tuesday, as Josh Homme and Dean Fertita debuted a stripped-down rendition of “Villains of Circumstance” featuring the accompaniment of a string section. The stirring performance can be replayed in full below, or via BBC’s website. Last night’s episode of Jools Holland also featured performances from Morrissey, The National, and Jessie Ware.
