Slated for a June release the LP will also feature Dave Grohl, Sir Elton John, Trent Reznor and Jake Shears with previous QOTSA collaborators Nick Oliveri and Mark Lanegan also giving a hand.

Dave Grohl let slip the Elton collaboration…Like Clockwork last month with Elton going on to admit the nature of the collaboration further by saying it came at a weird time.

“Engelbert Humperdinck had written me a very sweet letter and asked me to sing a duet with him,” he explained. “He is part of my history and I couldn’t say no so I went and recorded a song with him. Then I drove three blocks and went from Engelbert to Queens Of The Stone Age.”

The juxtapostition “was a bit of a mindfuck” he added.

…Like Clockwork was produced by Josh Homme and the rest of the band and we’re being promised an extensive world tour to support it.

The band are already on the bill for a number of European festivals this summer – including Open’er and Benicassim.
