The new Queens Of The Stone Age album has already been one of the most anticipated new albums of 2013. That’s thanks in part to confirmed appearances from Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor, Nick Oliveri and others we probably don’t even know about. Well now we can add one more queen to the list: Elton John.
During an appearance on Chelsea Lately last night (which Grohl has been guest-hosting all week), Elton John revealed that he has contributed to Queens Of The Stone Age’s new album. He said that the recording session occurred in in L.A. after he recorded a duet with Engelbert Humperdinck, and also stated that he’s a big fan of both QOSTA and Them Crooked Vultures. Grohl also joked during the interview that he expected to be playing a ballad when John walked in, though much to his pleasure it wasn’t.
Many may recall the time when John contributed piano playing to the title track of Alice In Chains’ Black Gives Way To Blue (which he makes a point to mention during the interview). Still, it’ll be interesting to hear what exactly a Queens Of The Stone Age song will sound like with the “Crocodile Rock” singer.
