Kevork Djansezian/WireImageChris Hillman is teaming up with Tom Petty and some special guests for his first studio album in over a decade.

The founding member of seminal folk/country-rock band the Byrds will issue Bidin’ My Time on September 22. Produced by Petty, the album features appearances by Hillman’s former Byrds mates David Crosby and Roger McGuinn, and three members of Petty’s Heartbreakers: guitarist Mike Campbell, keyboardist Benmont Tench and drummer Steve Ferrone.

In addition to Hillman originals, the album includes a number of significant cover tunes, including Hillman’s reworking of “The Bells of Rhymney,” co-written by folk icon Pete Seeger and recorded by the Byrds on their 1965 debut album, Mr. Tambourine Man.

Bidin’ My Time also includes “Here She Comes Again,” co-written by Hillman and McGuinn and previously recorded only on a live album in Australia; and “She Don’t Care About Time,” written by late Byrds co-founder Gene Clark and originally the B-side of the Byrds’ hit, “Turn! Turn! Turn!”

In addition, Hillman’s album features covers of Petty’s tune “Wallflowers” and the Everly Brothers chestnut “Walk Right Back.”

Hillman will hit the road in September for a series of live dates.
