Dave Grohl will play drums on a new Queens of the Stone Age album, following the departure of drummer Joey Castillo, bandleader Josh Homme told the BBC.

Grohl, the former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters leader, played on Queens of the Stone Age's 2002 album Songs for the Deaf. Grohl "and I have this wonderful musical relationship which we don't have with other people," Homme said. "It's a very cool and comfortable position."

Homme said the band is close to finishing the new album, their sixth, which is due sometime in 2013. It's not clear whether Grohl will also join Queens of the Stone Age on tour, though it looks like he'll have some free time: he announced in September that Foo Fighters was taking a break.
