Queens Of The Stone Age will release a new Christmas single later this month.

Josh Homme and co recorded the cover of Silent Night while on their 2017 tour of Australia, and are joined on the track by blues guitarist CW Stoneking. The b-side features Homme reading Twas the Night Before Christmas with his wife Brody Dalle and their “three merry-making elves.”

Both tracks will be released on digital platforms on Friday (December 7) while a limited edition 7-inch vinyl will arrive the following week on December 14.

Proceeds from sales of the single will be split between the Sweet Stuff Foundation (opens in new tab) and Support Act (opens in new tab) and is available to pre-order exclusively through the official Queens Of The Stone Age website (opens in new tab).

Homme created the Sweet Stuff Foundation in 2013 to help support musicians, recording engineers and their families struggling with illness and disability.

Support Act, meanwhile, has a similar mission statement and was founded in 1997 by AMCOS, APRA, ARIA and PPCA to provide support for Australian musicians.
