Hear Two Lovely New Queens Of The Stone Age Songs

Here’s what we know about the new Queens of the Stone Age album, …Like Clockwork.

-That ellipsis is supposed to be there
-It’s due out June 4th
-June 4th isn’t right now, which is a damn shame
-Trent Reznor, Jake Shears, Alex Turner, Elton John, and Dave Grohl all contributed to it
“My God Is the Sun,” heavy; “I Sat by the Ocean” and “If I Had a Tail,” not so much

Josh Homme & Co. debuted the two songs from the album on a Belgian radio station yesterday, and they’re a bit more laid back (and eerie) than what we’re used to from Queens of the Stone Age, with guitar solos that wander rather than shred. No less good, though, not that anyone was worried. Hear ’em below.
