Elton John recently hooked up with Queens of the Stone Age for a track on their upcoming album, Like Clockwork. A brief preview of the song is now available at QOTSA's site.
The band's fronter Josh Homme explained how the unlikely combo went down, saying, during an interview with XFM, that he got a call from Elton, who'd heard QOTSA through his assistant:
"So all of a sudden, I get a phone call at my house on a Sunday. I picked it up and he said, 'Hello Josh, this is Elton.' I thought someone was messing with me."
Elton quickly disarmed Josh with his quick wit: "The only thing missing from your band is an actual queen."
Later the "Rocket Man" hooked up with Homme and the boys in the studio, an experience the latter called "a blast."
Like Clockwork hits June 4.
