First premiered at Lollapalooza Brazil, the desert rockers share the lead single off their forthcoming album.
‘My God is the Sun’ is a return to form after the underwhelming Era Vulgaris. The headbanger features a live-wire riff, Josh Homme at his most operatic, a relentless rhythm section motor, and some haunted house theremin reminiscent of the band’s weirder B-movie inclinations.
Queens of the Stone Age will release …Like Clockwork on new home Matador Records on June 3 in the UK and June 4 in the US. …Like Clockwork features appearances by Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Mark Lanegan, former member Nick Oliveri, and many more. The album will be available to pre-order from Matador and iTunes at midnight, and pre-orderers will receive ‘My God is the Sun’ instantly.
Update: The ‘My God is the Sun’ website also includes a link to the album’s cover art.
