Sharon Van Etten and Josh Homme have revealed a music video for their cover of ‘(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?’
First revealed last week, Sharon and Josh’s cover of the Nick Lowe classic now comes complete with a video which finds themselves performing separately at their own homes – complete with all sorts of family life going on (children, dogs, glasses of wine – you know the drill!). Even Nick Lowe himself pops up at one point!
Speaking about the collaboration further, the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman noted: “I went to a Courtney Barnett Valentine’s Day concert that Sharon Van Etten was playing as one of a veritable buffet of musicians. She opened her mouth and my mind exploded—that voice, like fresh cream… with a hint of fine grit. When a week later the opportunity arose to sing with her, I jumped at it. This was of course before we had any idea that the world would be going into hiding for months. Recording this song had nothing to do with what we’d be going through… until we started going through it. In these times, it’s a blessing to feel lucky even for a moment… and I feel lucky to have been able to work with Sharon, Zach Dawes, Michael Shuman, Matthew Siskin and our families.
“When you’re shooting at home you start out shooting only what you love. Then you get tired and stop. This video doesn’t deal with anything outside of what’s happening within its own little world we created — only what’s happening inside two households connected by what they love the most, nothing more.”
