Queens of the Stone Age Announce New Album ‘…Like Clockwork,’ Release First Single ‘My God Is the Sun’

Queens of the Stone Age ...Like Clockwork
Matador

Queens of the Stone Age have announced a June 4 street date for ‘…Like Clockwork,’ their sixth studio album and first studio since 2007′s ‘Era Vulgaris.’ Check out the disc’s first single, ‘My God Is the Sun,’ below.

QOTSA began writing ‘…Like Clockwork’ while rehearsing for a 2011 tour that featured the band playing their self-titled 1998 debut album, and frontman Josh Homme said that rehearsing for that tour helped define the new one.

“It’s been turning the new record into something else,” he told The Guardian. ”What we were doing was kind of bluesy and now it’s turned into this trancey, broken thing. The robots are back!”

‘…Like Clockwork’ features Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl handling drumming duties following the departure of Joey Castillo, and it also includes guest appearances from Alain Johannes, Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and former QOTSA bassists Nick Oliveri.

It’s not known whether any of the latter three musicians appear on ‘My God Is the Sun,’ but judging from the pummeling the skins take on the track, it sure sounds like a certain Nirvana skinsman is behind the kit.

Regardless of whether Grohl is drumming, ‘My God Is the Sun’ is a raucous barn-burner that shows the Queens mean business on ‘…Like Clockwork.’ The tune premiered earlier today on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, and now you can check it out below.
