Elton Recording Song for Queens of the Stone Age
The 'Rocket Man' singer was a guest on Chelsea Lately show in America last night, guest hosted by Dave Grohl, where he made the announcement.
Grohl told the audience: "Recently, Elton and I recorded something together. Something that people wouldn't imagine the two of us doing together."
Elton continued: "I was in Vegas and I flew back to LA and Engelbert Humperdinck had written me a very sweet letter and asked me to sing a duet with him. He is part of my history and I couldn't say no so I went and recorded a song with him.
“Then I drove three blocks and went from Engelbert to Queens Of The Stone Age, which was a bit of a mindf*ck.”
Grohl interrupts: "I remember you walking in and him being, like, 'Have you got a ballad for me?' and we were just like, 'no, we do not have a ballad for you.'”
Elton added: "After three hours we got it and he drummed on every take and every take was amazing. He's built like a brick sh*t-house when he drums."
Other guests confirmed to appear on the band's new album include Trent Reznor, Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri and Jake Shears from The Scissor Sisters.
