Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner, Elton John to appear on new Queens Of The Stone Age album

It has been confirmed that Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner will appear on the new Queens Of The Stone Age album '...Like Clockwork'.

The album was officially announced earlier this week with the band having signed to Matador to release the album in June. A new press release circulated by the band's label confirms the list of guest stars appearing on the album with Turner lining up alongside the previously known guests such as Dave Grohl, Sir Elton John, Trent Reznor, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. Previous Queens Of The Stone Age collaborators Mark Lanegan and Nick Oliveri will also appear on the album as does James Lavelle, better known as the man behind UNKLE.

In addition to the guest stars, it has also been confirmed that the band will embark on a world tour to promote the album. A new drummer will also be revealed shortly, as the band make their live return next weekend at Lollapalooza Brazil. Dave Grohl contributed drums to '...Like Clockwork', but is not thought to be touring with the Josh Homme fronted band. Joey Castillo and Jon Theodore have also recorded drum parts for the album.

The band will be playing a number of festivals this summer, including Benicàssim in Spain, and Download in the UK.
