Amid growing mystery around the release of Josh Home’s eagerly anticipated Desert Sessions album, the Queens of the Stone Age frontman has finally revealed the details.

Arriving as the first Desert Sessions album in 16 years, Home revealed that a star0studded line-up has been recruited with the likes of Royal Blood, Warpaint, ZZ Top, Matt Berry and more all contributing. Typically, Homme as produced the albums after residing to the Rancho De La Luna studios in Joshua Tree, California.
