Band's third album due next spring

November 29, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Queens of the Stone Age will release their third album, Songs for the Deaf, next spring. The album is the follow-up to the group's major-label breakthrough, 2000's Rated R.

The band has been in Los Angeles and San Francisco studios recording the album with producer Eric Valentine (Third Eye Blind, Smash Mouth). Initially, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl planned to drum on three tracks, but their collaborations proved so successful that Grohl ended up drumming on the majority of Songs.

Other guests include Ween's Dean Ween, who recorded three songs ("Six Shooter," "I'm Gonna Leave" and "Mosquito Song") with the band, in addition to former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and Kyuss drummer Brant Bjork.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
