Collaborators on the upcoming album include Rob Thomas, Jeff Beck and Alison Kraus.

LeAnn Rimes is going to heat things up on her new album.

The country star's "Spitfire" is dune June 4 on Curb Records, with Rimes sparking up several collaborations: guitarist Jeff Beck and Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas are featured on "Gasoline & Matches," with Alison Kraus and Dan Tyminsky adding their voices to "What Have I Done?"

Rimes co-wrote nine tracks on the 14-track set, with other credits including co-producer Darrell Brown, Dan Wilson, Missy Higgins and Dean Sheremet -- Rimes' ex-husband.

"I hope I’m saying things that are hard for others to express," Rimes said in a release. "It certainly took me a lot of work to get to this point. And it’s still easier to sing these thoughts than it is to say them out loud.  The intimacy in my music is just beginning.”
