The new Queens Of The Stone Age album, "Villians," comes out on the 25th, but some people unexpectedly (and unusually) got to listen to some of the songs early!
Ever hear of Australian singer Gordi? Well she released her new album, Reservoir, on vinyl....with a bit of an accident. It turns out that the B-side of the vinyl accidentally contains new QOTSA songs...specifically Fortress’, ‘Head Like a Haunted House’ and ‘Un-Reborn Again’.
This was not a marketing tactic but instead a mix-up with the pressing.
The label sent a statement saying: “This is a pressing defect that we’re working diligently to resolve as quickly as possible. “It’s not the first time this sort of thing has happened, but we’re all hoping it’s the last.”
Gordi herself says: : “Obviously I was aware that the Queens of the Stone Age album was coming out the same week as mine and I was aware it would probably garner all the limelight, so the logical solution was to just chuck a bunch of their songs on ‘Reservoir’. I anticipate either people won’t notice or they’ll appreciate the dynamic shift.”
