The video for ‘The Way You Used To Do’, taken from Queens Of The Stone Age’s album Villains, is now available to view on Youtube for the first time. The devilish promo has been realised as a fever dream Satanic dance ritual extravaganza—featuring QOTSA founder and frontman Joshua Homme.
Conceived by Joshua Homme, directed by Jonas Akerlund and produced by Serial Pictures, ‘The Way You Used To Do’ somehow fit its multiple sets, wardrobe changes and intricate dance routines into one day of shooting in Los Angeles.
Homme says “It’s our way of paying tribute to Cab Calloway and the film Hellzapoppin’. I fully realise that may be a little more than some are open to, and that’s perfectly fine with me. There’s the door. If some of the more close-minded are gently pruned, that just leaves more room on the dance floor for the open-minded ones to get loose. That’s been the spirit of Queens Of The Stone Age and the space we’ve worked to create from day one.”
