Olivier Libaux's new music is nothing if not timely. Following up on Josh Homme and co.'s new …Like Clockwork, the erstwhile Nouvelle Vague mastermind's solo effort, Uncovered Queens of the Stone Age (Music for Music Lovers), due July 16, finds the Frenchman covering QOTSA songs with the help of an impressive array of guest singers. The first single, a lilting sway through "No One Knows," finds the Bird and the Bee's Inara George cooing Josh Homme's malevolent lyrics. It's about as badass as bossa nova gets.
