‘THE WAY YOU USED TO DO’

“Dancing and headbanging are truly individualistic expressions of losing oneself fully in appreciation of music – who better to combine these things into a singular vision than someone who’s directed Madonna and Lady Gaga videos – and also happens to have been a member of Bathory?” —Joshua Homme

The video for “The Way You Used To Do,” taken from Queens Of The Stone Age’s UK Number One album Villains, is now available to view on Youtube for the first time. The devilish promo has been realized as a fever dream Satanic dance ritual extravaganza—featuring QOTSA founder and frontman Joshua Homme lighter on his feet and darker in his soul than ever before.

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. Considering potential reactions to the sinister shuffle of “The Way We Used To Do” being translated into a panoramic soul-selling dance trip, Homme says “It’s our way of paying tribute to Cab Calloway and the film Hellzapoppin’. I fully realize 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.”
