Sting‘s first album in 10 years will include an unexpected collaboration with Brian Johnson, the lead singer of AC/DC. ‘The Last Ship’ will hit stores on Sept. 24. As previously reported, the collection is the soundtrack to a theater production of the same name set to debut on Broadway in 2014.

It’s not clear what song, or how many songs Johnson will appear on, but a publicist has confirmed the cameo from the singer. The last time a hard-rocker collaborated on a more introspective project we ended up with ‘Lulu,‘ but early reviews of the music and musical have been much more positive. Sting screened the production in May in hopes of finding financial backers, according to the New York Times.

‘The Last Ship’ explores themes of homecoming and self-discovery. The plot is focused on a shipyard in Wallsend, Eng., a town near where Sting grew up. It’s the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in the ’80s.

Look for the album in several configurations, including a 12-song version and a two-disc deluxe set featuring five bonus tracks. There’s also a 20-song super deluxe version with special packaging that will be available through Amazon. Digital and vinyl versions will also be available.
