It’s never easy staying up until 4:40am – normally it requires an absolute cracker of a World Cup finale to inspire you – but no doubt this will give you the latest news from the QOTSA camo will give you strength to do so as well: Queens Of The Stone Age have announced they will be releasing their brand-new single My God Is The Sun this morning at that exact time.
If you’re reading this from the States, you’ll get to check out the brand-new track that they premiered at Lollapalooza very recently at a much more comfortable 11:40am PDT (on your Monday, 8th April which is our Tuesday, 9th April). Either way…it’s in 12 hours from this being published. Stupid annoying timezones.
If you head over to this website, you’ll be able to sign up to ensure you don’t miss the drop. It looks like Zane Lowe’s got the exclusive premiere on his BBC Radio 1 show tonight, as per the below tweet, and we’re guessing you can hear the single immediately after the radio play.
We got pretty excited when the band unleashed My God Is The Sun during the Lollapalooza Brazil performance. MGITS is the first taste of what we can expect from the feast that will be …Like Clockwork. In a live setting, the track was an absolute weapon. Josh Homme’s voice…it’s been far too long.
Now’s the time to set your alarms for 4:40am if you live in Sydney, and it’s probably a good idea to find out when it will be live for you. Or whatever – wait until you wake up naturally and let us do the early start for you.
This Monday Night April 8th. QOTSA ‘My God Is The Sun’ Premier and full interview with Josh. 7pm UK. BBC Radio 1.
