Hear Josh Homme’s Electro Remix of Mark Lanegan’s ‘Sad Lover’

“Josh Homme channeled the ghost of Eighties New Wave for this mix,” says Lanegan


Mark Lanegan's "Sad Lover" just got an electro remix by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme.

When it arrived last month on the Mark Lanegan Band's No Bells on Sunday EP, "Sad Lover" had a strong beat and some chest-grabbing distortion. Thanks to a remix by Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme, however, it now has more of both, building up into a synth-driven industrial dance workout: "Josh Homme channeled the ghost of Eighties New Wave for this mix," Lanegan tells Rolling Stone

No Bells on Sunday was released on July 29th through Flooded Soil/Vagrant Records, with 1,500 copies pressed vinyl and available online. Lanegan's last full-length, Imitations, was released in 2013, and in 2012, Rolling Stone described the previous one as sounding like "Leonard Cohen, Andrew Eldritch, and countless other gothy dudes with a taste for dysfunctional relationships."
