Queens of the Stone Age have posted a clip of new music featuring Elton John on piano.
The 23-second preview shows a machine cutting the vinyl master of their new album "... Like Clockwork." Elton John was announced as a collaborator on the new record in February, and while he hasn't been officially confirmed as the pianist on this clip, we're assuming a hard-rocking band like QOTSA don't have many piano ballads on the new record.
You can hear the new song preview in the player below.
Meanwhile, frontman Josh Homme recently talked about other musicians on the new album which includes Dave Grohl, a long-time collaborator with QOTSA having played drums on their 2002 classic "Songs For The Deaf."
"I have a special relationship with Dave," Homme told BBC Radio 1 while previewing the debut single from the new album. "I've known him since I was 19. He makes something good, great. If something's mediocre he makes it great."
