Rock couple Josh Homme and Brody Dalle will join British dance music star James Lavelle on his third Unkle project.

THE CULT star Ian Astbury has also recorded vocals for three tracks on the new album, and is thrilled to be working with Lavelle.

The rocker tells Billboard.com, "I have a great admiration for James Lavelle as an artist."

The new Unkle project will be the follow-up to 2003's NEVER, NEVER, LAND, which featured guest spots from Brian Eno and Jarvis Cocker, among others.
