"Do Me a Favor" is a song by American rock band Stone Sour, released on February 12, 2013 as the lead-off single from House of Gold & Bones – Part 2. It contains a reprise of "A Rumor of Skin".

Background[edit]

Lead vocalist Corey Taylor recently suggested that while a single for "Part 2" would be the next release, there would still be more singles from "Part 1".

Corey Taylor gave a preview of what to expect from the song:[1]

"It's quite aggressive, and actually the label asked me if I would go in and tame stuff down and I was like, 'No.' I'm not doing that," he said. "This is going out the way it is and I'm not gonna touch it up. I'm not gonna have people looking for a song that doesn't exist. This is the way it is on the album, that's the way it's going to be when we put it out to radio."

Taylor notes:[2]

Taylor recently told:[3]

Music video[edit]

The animated video for "Do Me a Favor" was directed by Phil Mucci[4] and was released through their official YouTube channel on March 27.[5] This video features comic book style imagery that is reminiscent of the movie Sin City. During this video we have flashes of colors, wild camera angles, an epic battle and a pretty blond. All of this is set to the delightful tune by Stone Sour.

Corey Taylor told about the video that it features all the characters from the story: Human, Allen, Black John, Numbers and Peckinpah.
