Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age will be releasing a new round of Desert Sessions next month.

According to the New York Times, Josh Homme is set to revive his Desert Sessions project that sees him collaborate with various musicians.

Homme released his first Desert Sessions in 1997, and continued sharing the sessions until 2003.

The rocker apparently returned to the desert to record volumes 11 and 12 late last year.

Homme's new Desert Sessions will feature eight tracks, and sees him collaborate with ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Primus' Les Claypool, Jack White drummer Carla Azar, Warpaint's drummer Stella Mozgawa, Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters, and more.

It's been 16 years since the last Desert Sessions volume. Back in May the Queens Of The Stone Age hinted at the Desert Sessions revival in an Instagram post.

The split second before they asked each other “why the long face?” At the exact, Same, Time. Only then did the new friends realize, they owed each other a coke. You know, this is one of those moments that really makes you stop & think: I wonder if anyone’s been recording in the desert? I dunno. I just, Don’t, Know. #newfriends #desert #longface #tinyhorsebirdbuddies #sessions #fastfriends #11 #saddleup #longtimeago #& #oppositesattract #strangesupplier #12 #movetogether #horsinaround #qotsa #queensofthestoneage #tightwads&nitwits&critics&heels #mansionsofmirror #answerthephone #crucifire #horseplay #birdbrain #makesyouwonder #stonersheaverocks
