Prepare to crank up those ‘holiday feels’ with the newly released (for streaming and download!) cover of a Christmas classic courtesy Queens Of The Stone Age.
The tune sees Josh Homme teaming up with Australian blues musician C.W. Stoneking for a quirky rendition of “Silent Night.”
Check it out for yourself!
If so, it’s available right now to download at QOTSA’s website and comes with an additional track that features a Homme family reading of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” (yup, that includes Josh, his wife Brody Dalle and their three kids… I mean, elves!).
According to the QOTSA website, “Proceeds from the single will benefit the Sweet Stuff Foundation, the non-profit created by Homme in 2013 to provide assistance to career musicians, recording engineers and their families struggling with illness and disability, and to Support Act, an alliance with a similar mission founded in 1997 in Australia by AMCOS, APRA, ARIA and PPCA.”
And just in time for Christmas, a limited edition vinyl version of both the ‘Silent Night’ cover and the Homme family holiday reading, will be available exclusively via the Queens of the Stone Age website as of December 14th.
