Josh Homme: New Queens Of The Stone Age album "sounds like running in a dream"

Josh Homme has said that the songs he has recorded with Dave Grohl for the new Queens Of The Stone Age album "sound like running in a dream".

The frontman, who recruited Grohl to play drums on the album after Joey Castillo left the band, was speaking to Zane Lowe as part of an interview broadcast on Radio 1 this week and opened up on how the new album sessions are going. Speaking to the DJ, Homme said: "I think this record is a little more lyrically vulnerable, but I also think it's sort of musically deeper and richer, and it's a little bit stranger."

Homme later added that there are "a lot of struggles going on," with the recording but that: "This record basically sounds like you're running in a dream the whole time."

Dave Grohl has a long standing relationship with Homme and famously filled in as drummer when the band recorded their 2002 album 'Songs For The Deaf'. Speaking about the reunion earlier this year, Homme said: [Grohl] and I have this wonderful musical relationship which we don't have with other people. It's a very cool and comfortable position."

It has also been confirmed that both Trent Reznor and former bassist Nick Oliveri has been recording with the band ahead of their new album release.
