Queens of the Stone Age have just released new album ...Like Clockwork and speaking to Radio X's Danielle Perry recently frontman Joshua Homme said he is always trying to find the balance between familiarity and originality with his music.

"Musical safety is like death to me," he exclaimed.

"There's a bunch of manufactured music that's out there that I like just fine. I love a bit of sugar. There's a place for everything under the sun. I like to make something as honest as I can so you don't have a choice but to go after something that makes you feel... awkward."

…Like Clockwork - the band's first full length record since 2007's Era Vulgaris - features a collaborations with Elton John, as well as Alex Turner and Dave Grohl.

It has previously been described by Joshua Homme as "an audio documentary of a manic year."
