Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and collaborative partner Jesse Hughes announced last June the release of the first new Eagles of Death Metal‘s album in seven years, Zipper Down.
For the Zipper Down sessions at Pink Duck Studios in Burbank, California, Hughes and Homme co-wrote all of the album’s songs (with the exception of their cover of Duran Duran’s “Save A Prayer”), and performed all of the instruments and vocals themselves. The album is produced by Homme.
“The new album, Zipper Down, really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life,” says Hughes. “One should not zipper up, they should Zipper Down and let it all hang out.”
Homme (AKA “Baby Duck”) says, “In an independent study, four out of three doctors say Zipper Down is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them.”
The new Eagles of Death Metal’s album, Zipper Down, is due to be released on October 2nd via T-Boy/UME. The album is currently being streaming (via NPR) in its entirely.
