Queens of the Stone Age Drop Another Cryptic Clue
The band have previous sent two handwritten letters to music media outlets Uncut and Mojo with some clues about the forthcoming album.
Now the band has sent a new handwritten letter to Kerrang! that contained a drawn hand with several wristwatches and the following text: DEAR KERRANG,
…SOME THINGS YOU CAN'T FIX SO…
ON THIS RECORD WE CAME TO A REALIZATION: THE BEST TRICK OF ALL, IS NO TRICK AT ALL
THE SONGS ARE A REAL TIME DOCUMENT OF THE MANIC UPS AND DOWNS OF THE LAST YEAR. IT CAN'T ALWAYS RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK.
SO RATHER THAN CONTROL THE DIRECTION OF THE RECORDINGS, WE DECIDED TO RIDE SHOTGUN ON OUR EMOTIONAL BANDWAGON. WE EMBRACED OUR EVIL, HELD THE HORRIBLE, LICKED THE LUNACY AND BLEW THE BEAUTIFUL. AS A RESULT, WE'RE ON CLOUD 9.
I CAN'T WRITE ANYMORE CAUSE MY PHONE'S DYING,
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
Cryptic letters aside, we do know that Dave Grohl will be playing drums on the album and it will feature guest appearances from Elton John, Nick Oliveri, Jake Shears and Mark Lanegan.
