Todd Rundgren to release “highly collaborative” new album, “White Knight,” in May

Cleopatra RecordsTodd Rundgren must be doing more than just banging on his drum all day, because the prolific singer/songwriter has announced plans to release a new studio album called White Knight on May 12. Few official details have been revealed about the record, which is available for pre-order now at Rundgren’s official online store.

Rundgren did talk a bit about the new project last summer with ABC Radio, revealing that, unlike his recent studio releases, he was planning to have quite a few guest artists contribute.

“Living out here in Kauai, it’s hard to get people together on a whim, so even if I do collaborate it’s sort of remotely,” he said.  “But…I’ve gotten to the point where there’s a lot of people that I have thought I might like to work with [and] it’s time for me to get down and do it. So, this record will include a lot of names on it.”

To promote the upcoming album, Todd has lined up a series of spring U.S. dates for a trek has dubbed White Knight: The Chivalrock Tour. According to, more than a dozen shows have been confirmed, running from an April 29 concert in St. Louis through a June 10 performance in Syracuse, New York.
