Trent Reznor will be lending a hand on the new Queens of the Stone Age album, he said yesterday during a Reddit Ask Me Anything session. The Nine Inch Nails frontman dropped the news while answering questions about his new band, How to Destroy Angels. When someone asked what else he's working on, Reznor replied, "A number of things. Tweaking some things for the HTDA full LP (coming in Spring), helping Josh out on a new QOTSA track, working with [NIN tour producer] Roy [Bennett], starting rehearsals for two bands."

Last week, Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme said that Dave Grohl will be playing drums on the band's next album, due sometime in 2013.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
