Queens of the Stone Age’s new album Villains will be released next week on August 25th. According to Reddit, it looks like a few of these songs can be found on the Australian singer-songwriter Gordi’s album Reservoir. The LP has the same release date as QOTSA’s, and on the singer’s B-side vinyl copies, there’s a pressing mixup that includes songs such as “Fortress,” “Head Like a Haunted House,” and “Un-Reborn Again” on it.
Chris Swanson of Secretly Group, confirmed the mix-up to Pitchfork stating:
“This is a pressing defect that we’re working diligently to resolve as quickly as possible. It’s not the first time this sort of thing has happened, but we’re all hoping it’s the last.”
Gordi thought fans wouldn’t notice or “appreciate the dynamic shift”
“Obviously I was aware that the Queens of the Stone Age album was coming out the same week as mine and I was aware it would probably garner all the limelight, so the logical solution was to just chuck a bunch of their songs on ‘Reservoir’. I anticipate either people won’t notice or they’ll appreciate the dynamic shift.”
