Queens Of The Stone Age will release their forthcoming new album '…Like Clockwork' on June 3.

Scroll down for the full tracklisting for the band's sixth album, which is the follow-up to 2007's 'Era Vulgaris'. Artwork for the album has been designed by UK artist Boneface and can be seen above.

The band premiered the studio version of the album's first single 'My God Is The Sun' on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show this evening (April 8). Speaking about the album, Joshua Homme told Lowe: "I feel like a weight made of monkeys has lifted off my shoulders."

"Every once in a while this process is difficult," he added of making the record. "This is documenting the journey of moving forward and it was a tough time... Not to get all Beatles on you, but [I] just 'Let It Be'."

The track is available now as a free download to fans who pre-order '...Like Clockwork' through the band's label Matador. The iTunes and Amazon pre-order starts on April 9.

'My God Is The Sun' is streaming now at QOTSA.com. Scroll down to listen to the song, which the band debuted live at Lollapalooza Brazil at the end of March.

'…Like Clockwork' is made up of 10 tracks and was produced by Joshua Homme and the band at Pink Duck in Burbank, California. It was recorded by Mark Rankin with additional engineering by Justin Smith.

The album contains a list of guest stars, including Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters.

The band's only confirmed live UK date this year is at Download Festival (June 14-16) at Donington Park.
