The album is titled …Like Clockwork is due out in June via the band’s new label, Matador Records. exciting.

Regarding the release, the ginger giant known as Josh Homme has said it's an "audio documentary of a manic year." I for one cannot wait to hear some full tracks. On the release we can expect guest spots from Dave Grohl on skins, Alex Turner, Trent Reznor, Sir elton John, Joey Castillo, Nick Oliveri, Mark Lanegan, Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Jon Theodore and James Lavelle of UNKLE. 

The album itself was produced by the big man Homme and recorded at Pink Duck Studios. So, get excited. I know I've had a perma-boner since Friday due to the excitement. I should probably go and see a doctor about it.

[Watch] UNKLE - "Money & Run" Feat. Nick Cave (Video)

Check out this entertaining new video from UNKLE and Nick Cave's collaboration for the track, "Money & Run". The video is a fun watch but also NSFW as it sees some powerful men, i.e. bankers/politicians whatever they are, partaking in their daily lives. You know, golf and tennis, the daily sports of the rich and wealthy. Director Tom Haines however turns them into nasty, cruel characters beating up youths and throwing them into the back of a car and generally getting away with whatever they like due to their status.

I actually enjoyed the violent visuals paired up with the track but you may not. Decide for yourselves at the top via TwentyFourBit.

[Watch] UNKLE - "The Runaway" (Video)

Check out the new video from UNKLE for single "The Runaway" which features ELLE J taken from his album released back in May, Where Did The Night Fall. I don't really know what to make of the video for this in all honesty. It consists of women dancing and swaying to the music in a trance like state behind a silk screen. It's a bit hypnotic once you pair it with the repetitive catchy main computer like rhythm and bass. Check it out for yourself above. UNKLE are on the road right now and the dates are over here. As an added extra you can pick up a re-working of the track below that Lupe Fiasco added some extra bass and heaviness to. Time to get that Friday feeling everybody.
