Cleopatra RecordsTodd Rundgren‘s latest studio album, White Knight, features collaborations with an eclectic variety of musicians, including “I Got Your Back,” which finds the prolific rock veteran teaming up with modern funk/R&B artist Dam-Funk. Now, Dam-Funk has created a new version of the tune he’s dubbed a “Re-Freak,” as opposed to a remix, that features new vocals and heavier synth bass.

The track is available now on all major digital platforms and streaming services.

“Working with one of my heroes in music was a genuine pleasure,” Dam-Funk says of collaborating with Rundgren. “His progressive mind when it comes to all things music, without losing his soul in it, is such an inspiration to me and in what I humbly try to contribute to music listeners and aspire to. As the song says, ‘I got your back, Todd.'”

Those purchasing the new “I Got Your Back” digital single also will receive a digital B-side — the remixed version of Trent Reznor and Atticus RossWhite Knight collaboration with Rundgren, “Deaf Ears,” which was previously unavailable as a download.

White Knight, which was released in May 2017, also features guest appearances by Daryl Hall, Steely Dan‘s Donald Fagen, Joe Walsh, Joe Satriani and others.

Todd will wrap up his current tour as a member of Ringo Starr‘s All Starr Band tonight in Newark, New Jersey, and will then head out on his own solo trek. The outing kicks off Friday night in Salisbury, Massachusetts, and will wind down with a New Year’s Eve concert at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, California.
