The Queen of the Stone Age has been in the studio for quite some time, and have on numerous occasions teased both the fans and music publications about a forthcoming album.
The album, titled ".. Like Clockwork" has now been confirmed and snippets from the upcoming release can be heard on the QOTSA's website.
A possible June release has been reported by Antiquiet. But no set date or tracklist as of yet. Foo Fighters Dave Grohl have recorded drums for the album as we await the announcement of a drummer for the forthcoming tour. Other guests apperances include Elton John, Trent Reznor, Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters
Read. I guess, if Elton John, why not the Scissor sisters as well?
We've also learnt that two other high-profile names have been added to the feature list, Alex Turner (from Arctic Monkeys) and James Lavelle (from UNKLE). The new drummer, Jon Theodore, is going on tour with the band. Theodore played for The Mars Volta, so I don't think we need to worry he wouldn't be up for the task.
Listen to the studio version of My God is The Sun below!
This should be a real treat when it comes out. Look forward to it.
Fuck yes, I am so stoked about this. And Dave Grohl is doing drums again, even better!
When I heard Dave Grohl would be doing drums again I flipped.
Is there any idea yet how many guest artists are on this yet?
Like clockwork includes drums by Dave Grohl, Joey Castillo and Jon Theodore and guest apparences by Sir Elton John, Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri, Trent Reznor, Jake Shears, James Lavelle and Alex Turner.
Form the Matado Records website.
Another guest appearance confirmed.
Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys.
One confirmed track name is “My God Is The Sun,” which they played about thirty minutes ago at Lollapalooza Brasil. It was fantastic even though apparently Brazilian media conglomerates can only afford to transmit data between the speed of fail and aids.
@Nik: here is the video to the new song “my god is the sun” with Jon Theodore (ex-the Mars Volta) on the drums… nice song which let’s hope for more good old qotsa-stuff…:-D
I’m so excited about this!
Queens of the Stone Age will premiere the new song “My God is the Sun” from their upcoming album “…Like Clockwork” on Monday. http://www.mygodisthesun.com/
I can’t edit, so:
And a real cover album:
Thanks a lot! Appreciated!
My God Is The Sun (Album Version) on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-90obSa1Az4
the band have posted this little tease of the album being cut to vinyl, with a track being played in the background. a little bit of homme falsetto?? :)
Thanks Steve, made it to our news section:
JUNE CAN’T GET HERE SOON ENOUGH!!! Era Vulgaris was good, but it wasn’t Rated R, Songs For The Deaf or Lullabies To Paralyze. I NEED NEW QUEENS NOW!
That said, Them Crooked Vultures was quite good, albeit a bit longer than likely necessary. Three songs less and it would likely have been perfect.
Dave Grohl on drums…wow. QOTSA is always a treat, it’ll be great for sure.
I’m so excited for this album to be released and for them to go on your because after that Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, and John Paul Jones will get together for the second Them Crooked Vultures album. Only then will I be able to die peacefully.
What’s the song with Trent?
It looks like QOTSA wants to play a game: http://www.likeclockwork.tv/
You will have to wait until Monday, May 6th to find out what this creepy video and the phone number is all about.
did you enter your number alex??
if you did, you will know you recieve a voicemail from the creepy phone dude….
They just uploaded a new song on likeclockwork.tv, called ‘I appear missing’. It seems to be just half of the song. It’s only three minutes, but the tracklist says the song is six minutes. I’m eager to know why they only posted half of the song. Enjoy!
its what they alway do . just put pieces of that finished stuff so we are eitherway excited about the full version …
Reading the feature on the album, Julian Casablancas is a really a collaborator? I didn’t read that anywhere else…
The new track is pretty good
I think that may be a mistake – I didn’t think he was on …LC, but he was definitely on Era Vulgaris.
This will be there best album, You heard it here first.
Not even close to first on this opinion.
Their last two records were disappointing to me, and with years of hype around this, I’m doubting it’ll impress me. Still going to give it a shot
This is going to be so huge…
Here’s high quality live versions of If I Had A Tail and I Sat By The Ocean. It can’t be but two more weeks before we get a leak, at least I hope.
wow, thank you! nice ones!
