Spoof-rockers Spinal Tap announced early in the year that they would reform and write their first album since 1992's Break Like The Wind. Now, details of that new album have finally come to light.
Entitled "Back From The Dead," the album contains 19 tracks. As well as new songs, it will include new versions of "Hell Hole" and "Big Bottom," and a reggae version of "(Listen the) Flower People" which all appeared on the soundtrack to the band's original 1984 mockumentary. Also included is "Jazz Odyssey" which appeared in the film but not the soundtrack.
The album features guest appearances from Def Leppard's Phil Collen, John Mayer, guitarist Steve Vai and keyboardist Keith Emerson and the release comes complete with an hour long DVD with insights from the band.
Some new songs weren't completed in time for the release, and Harry Shearer, better known as bassist Derek Smalls, told Billboard.com that they would possibly "do something digital with them on the download side or something like that".
"Back From The Dead" is due for release on June 15th
