With the June 4 release date of their long-awaited new album rapidly approaching, Queens of the Stone Age continue to turn up anticipation by unveiling “I Appear Missing,” the penultimate track on …Like Clockwork.

An animated video featuring a 3-minute version of the song was posted to the QOTSA YouTube channel Monday (May 6), just hours after teasing the brooding, mid-tempo track with a 30-second clip that ran on Adult Swim just hours earlier. An even longer version of the song is expected to show up on the album.

The post-apocalyptic video boasts the illustrations of British artist Boneface, who’s also responsible for …Like Clockwork’s recently revealed ghoulish cover art.

“I Appear Missing” is the second song to be released from the new album after “My God is the Sun,” which premiered on BBC Radio 1 in early April. The new tune comes just days after the band launched an eerie new website and phone campaign based around the new full-length.

The album features a cavalcade of guests including Elton John, Trent Reznor and Dave Grohl, and will be the band’s first since Era Vulgaris in 2007.
