Watch New Videos For “If You Run” & “Move Together” From Josh Homme’s “Desert Sessions”

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme has shared new videos for “If You Run” and “Move Together” from volumes 11 and 12 of his “Desert Sessions” series. Italian filmmaker Gabriele Fabbro created the clip for “If You Run,“ while Zimbabwean filmmaker Jonathan Samukange created the clip for “Move Together.“

Fabbro said the following about the “If You Run“ video:

“I used to read a lot of news about murders, especially on European newspapers. I remember one in particular that happened in a cornfield. That article came to mind while hearing ‘If You Run.’ With this music video I want to touch themes such as ‘femicide’, ‘chase for justice’, ‘innocent curiosity vs violence’. But on top, I want to play with an existential fear. The fear of being powerless. Every tool in the video, from the shakiness of the handheld shots to the distorted sound of the radio, serves to exaggerate this fear.”

Samukange said the following about the “Move Together“ video:

“I wanted to create a seamless balance between computer graphics and reality. I want my audience to escape into a time capsule, following the tragic love story of Adam and Eve. This idea is completely nuts, but it is also grounded in reality with themes of love, togetherness, collaboration, betrayal, and even brainwashing.”

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme Shares New Video For “If You Run” From His “Desert Sessions”

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme has shared a new video for “If You Run” from his “Desert Sessions” series. This particular track features Libby Grace. Volume 11, “Arrivederci Despair,” and Volume 12, “Tightwads & Nitwids & Critics & Heels,“ of the “Desert Sessions” are available now. Director Rio Hackford commented:

“The video was inspired by Josh bringing an unknown Libby Grace into the Desert Sessions arena to show her haunting magic to the world. Homme, [Matt] Sweeney and I are some of the only people who have heard Libby’s music, so the idea of them introducing her to the players and recording process lit the fuse. The song lent itself perfectly to the lonesome desert landscape and the spell that the Rancho can cast on anyone that passes through its doors.”
