Josh Homme has high praise for the new album by his friends in the Arctic Monkeys, which he appears on.
Homme returned the favour for singer Alex Turner appearing on the new Queens of the Stone Age record "...Like Clockwork" by singing on the Monkeys' fifth album, due on September 9, NME reports.
"It's a really cool, sexy after-midnight record. It's called 'AM,' so I guess thats really obvious," said Homme at the Rock for People festival in the Czech Republic last weekend. "And it's really good. It's not disco, but it's like a modern, dancefloor sexy record. It's really good."
Homme added that QOTSA will do a better job of releasing their next album quicker than their last album took.
"You make a record and the initial excitement is there, and ideally you make a record that lasts and lasts and lasts, but you have no way of knowing if that's gonna happen. And I think because we took six years we should jump in again. I don't know what that is, but I never tell you exactly when that is because it's part of what's cool about this whole thing," he said.
