Queens Of The Stone Age have launched a new website for their forthcoming album '...Like Clockwork'.

Visitors to Likeclockwork.tv will see a mask-wearing figure waiting by an old-fashioned rotary telephone. They can then enter their phone number into a box on the site and will later receive an eerie voicemail from the figure (which includes the phrase "The view from Hell is the blue sky") as well as a text message telling them to return on May 6 - the day of the album's release.

Earlier this month, the band released a video teaser for the new LP, which shows the vinyl version of the record being cut whilst a new song by the band plays in the background. The slow paced ballad is a departure from Queens Of The Stone Age's heavier style and sees frontman Josh Homme singing in a falsetto - you can watch by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The band recently premiered the studio version of the album's first single 'My God Is The Sun'. Speaking about the album to BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, Homme said: "I feel like a weight made of monkeys has lifted off my shoulders."

"Every once in a while this process is difficult. 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'."

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

'Keep Your Eyes Peeled'
'I Sat By The Ocean'
'The Vampyre of Time and Memory'
'If I Had A Tail'
'My God Is The Sun'
'Kalopsia'
'Fairweather Friends'
'Smooth Sailing'
'I Appear Missing'
'…Like Clockwork'
