Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has said that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's '...Like Clockwork' later this year.

Homme said that the band have "more than enough songs" for a new LP.

Asked by Rolling Stone if they'd be recording another album soon, Homme commented: "Absolutely. We have more than enough songs. We're booked 'til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going."

Speaking about spending time in the studio, Homme explained: "When it's time to make music, that's about getting lost for me. To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who's casually in control. You're feeling around in the dark for something that feels good. As long as you're not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment."

Meanwhile, Homme is set to make a guest appearance on American sketch comedy Portlandia when it returns for its fourth season this year. The show, which is written and performed by Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag singer Carrie Brownstein and ex-Saturday Night Live regular Fred Armisen, takes a satirical look at the hipster scene in Portland, Oregon and the various characters that inhabit the area.

Previous guest appearances on the show have come from James Mercer of The Shins, Jenny Conlee and Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, St. Vincent, Joanna Newsom and Johnny Marr. As well as Josh Homme, Season four of the show has also confirmed cameos from TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy. Season four of Portlandia will premiere in the US on February 27.
