Legendary singer/songwriter/producer/maestro Todd Rundgren will be releasing the new album White Knight this Spring. Rundgren announced today that the 15-track set will come out May 12 on Cleopatra Records, and will precede with a headlining tour that will kick off in April.

The set's track list is notable for the preponderance of guest stars involved, which run the gamut from peers of Rundgren's original '70s and '80s run (including Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates, Joe Walsh of the Eagles and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan), to luminaries of more modern art-pop (like Dam-Funk, Robyn and Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross), and even Rundgren's own son Rebop.

Rundgren also shared the first advance track from the upcoming set, the Robyn-featuring "That Could Have Been Me." The synth-pop ballad features the Swedish pop star in her peerless torch-song mold, crying "That empty pillow by your side / That could have been me" over lovelorn keys and echoing drums."
