Todd Rundgren has announced details of his new album titled White Knight.

It’ll launch on May 12 via Cleopatra Records and features guest appearances from a number of artists including Joe Walsh, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Daryl Hall, Joe Satriani, Dam Funk, Bobby Strickland, John Boutte, Joe Fagen and Bettye LaVette.

Rundgren says: “It’s easy to get used to playing to your own audience, even if you are absorbing and experimenting with new ideas.

“I wanted to collaborate not just for the musical possibilities, but also to play for new audiences and expose my fans to the range of artists I enjoy working with.”

White Knight is now available for pre-order, while the cover art and tracklist can be found below – along with a stream of the track That Could Have Been Me featuring Robyn.

Rundgren has also announced a run of US tour dates, with further shows to be added in due course.
