Queens Of The Stone Age have confirmed that former collaborator Mark Lanegan will appear on their forthcoming album.

"Lanegan came by. He didn't say much, but he sang good," said the simple Facebook update from the band which confirmed his contribution.
He joins a lineup of superstar names who will feature on the long-awaited album, which was originally scheduled to be completed by late 2011. They include Dave Grohl on drums, Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears, Trent Reznor who is helping with electronic production, and former bassist Nick Oliveri who was fired from the band in 2004.
Describing the album, band leader Josh Hommepreviously called it"lyrically vulnerable, but I also think it's sort of musically deeper and richer, and it's a little bit stranger ... this record basically sounds like you're running in a dream the whole time."
