    On April 5th, 2011, 429 Records will release How to Become Clairvoyant, Robbie Robertson's fifth solo album and his first record in more than 10 years. Guitar virtuosos Eric Clapton (who co-wrote three tracks with Robertson), Tom Morello and Robert Randolph guest on the album, which Robertson co-produced with Marius de Vries. Also, How to Become Clairvoyant also features Steve Winwood and Trent Reznor as well as vocalists Angela McCluskey, Rocco Deluca, Dana Glover and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes. Bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Ian Thomas lay down the groove throughout.

    You can check out "When The Night Was Young" by going here.

    The smoldering "Straight Down The Line" is a sly nod to rock 'n' roll's early reputation as the Devil's music, while the blistering "He Don't Live Here No More" details a battle with addiction. The latter features Clapton on harmony vocal and electric and slide guitars alongside Robertson's soulful gut string guitar solo.

    Named one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," Robertson was a founding member of The Band, penning such classic songs as "The Weight," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and "Up on Cripple Creek." The Band's 1976 farewell concert was documented by director Martin Scorsese in the film The Last Waltz and the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

    The track listing for How to Become Clairvoyant is as follows:

    1. Straight Down the Line
    2. When The Night Was Young
    3. He Don't Live Here No More
    4. The Right Mistake
    5. This Is Where I Get Off
    6. Fear of Falling
    7. She's Not Mine
    8. Madame X
    9. Axman
    10. Won't Be Back
    11. How To Become Clairvoyant
    12. Tango For Django

    Are you excited to learn how to become a clairvoyant?
