Vedder picked up a cowbell for 'Little Sister' at Lollapalooza Chile
Vedder accompanied the band on cowbell and backing vocals during the song ‘Little Sister’, taken from the Queens Of The Stone Age’s fourth album, ‘Lullabies To Paralyze’. Click above to watch footage of the performance.
“A wonderful musician and a great human being, Mr Eddie Vedder,” says Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme as he introduces the Pearl Jam man to the audience. As Vedder leaves the stage, Homme jokes that “he trained the cowbell at [New York performing arts school] Juilliard”.
The gig was part of the Lollapalooza Chile festival, which also saw sets from Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, Deadmau5, Franz Ferdinand, Foals, The Hives, Crystal Castles, Passion Pit and Alabama Shakes.
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.”
‘My God Is The Sun’ is streaming now at QOTSA.com.
‘…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.
