Josh Homme has discussed his work on the new Eagles Of Death Metal album as well as plans for a future Desert Sessions album.

As reported earlier this month, Eagles of Death Metal (Homme's side project with Jesse Hughes), are currently recording their next album. Homme is on the road in Australia at present with Queens Of The Stone Age touring the country with Nine Inch Nails and Brody Dalle, which is keeping the frontman from progressing with the recording process.

"I intend to go home and jump right back in, Homme told 3News. "It's been tough, and I feel like responsible for it not being done, because I am here! I hate being at the epicentre of what something isn't happening. So I am going to go home and jump into that."

Homme also discussed the chance of making another Desert Sessions album, the loose musical collective which has included PJ Harvey and was founded by Homme in 1997. Revealing that work with Eagles Of Death Metal has delayed a planned recording session, Homme said: "As far as Desert Sessions goes, I was going to do a Desert Sessions this year but we did some Eagles recording instead."

He continued: "Because Desert Sessions works best at a certain time of the year, when everything slows and everyone takes a deep breath out. At the end of the year, in that December-January timeframe, everyone has exhaled. And post-exhale is the time to do something like that. So if I miss that window… I miss that window."

Earlier this year Homme revealed that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's '...Like Clockwork' later this year, commenting that they have "more than enough songs" for a new LP.
