Eagles Of Death Metal’s ZIPPER DOWN Has Wild Artwork, Duran Duran Cover

Eagles Of Death Metal, the duo of Jesse Huges and Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, haven’t given us a new album since 2008. But they roared back onto our collective radar yesterday when they dropped the charged-up new single “Complexity.” As it turns out, that’s the lead track from a new album called ZIPPER DOWN, set to arrive this fall. Depending on who you ask, the album either has the best cover art of the year or the worst. (Personally, I’m inclined to say “worst,” though the way Homme is looking over the top of his sunglasses, like he’s on the poster of an ’80s movie, might force me to reconsider.) It also has 10 songs that Hughes and Homme wrote together, as well as one cover. That cover: A version of Duran Duran’s 1982 New Romantic ballad “Save A Prayer.” Check out the album’s tracklist below.

01 “Complexity”
02 “Silverlake (K.S.O.F.M.)”
03 “Got A Woman”
04 “I Love You All The Time”
05 “Oh Girl”
06 “Got The Power”
07 “Skin Tight Boogie”
08 “Got A Woman (Slight Return)”
09 “The Deuce”
10 “Save A Prayer”
11 “The Reverend”

ZIPPER DOWN is out 10/2 on T-Boy/UMe. Vice has also put together The Redemption Of The Devil, a documentary about Huges. Here’s a trailer:
