Indie hip-hop heavyweight El-P has secured guest spots from Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and the Mars Volta for his new album, "I'll Sleep When You're Dead." According to El-P's Myspace.com site, the Reznor collaboration is titled "Flyentology" and the Mars Volta track "is still getting structured."

"I have about four songs to finish and that's a wrap," he said of the new album, which will be the long-awaited follow-up to his 2002 effort "Fantastic Damage." That set reached No. 9 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart No. 14 on the Top Independent Albums tally.

El-P previously crossed paths with Reznor when he remixed the Nine Inch Nails song "Only" for the EP "Every Day Is Exactly the Same." His most recent project was producing Mr. Lif's new album, "Mo Mega," due Tuesday (June 13) via Definitive Jux.
