Listen: Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme releases cover of ‘Silent Night’

Paired with a reading of ''Twas the Night Before Christmas'

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has brought out his soft side for a digital release of his Christmas-themed 7-inch, which features a cover of “Silent Night” and a reading of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Homme enlists the help of Australian singer-songwriter C.W. Stoneking for “Silent Night,” and his wife Brody Dalle of The Distillers and their children for the reading of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Proceeds go toward the Homme’s Sweet Stuff Foundation and Support Act, which provide assistance to career musicians, recording engineers, and their families struggling with illness and disability.

Listen to “Silent Night” and “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” below.

Physical copies of the 7-inch are set for release on December 14th.
