Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo has teamed up with rock veteran Todd Rundgren for a new song called “Down with the Ship.”

“It’s just a little parable about what happens when you align yourself with a treacherous leader,” Rundgren says of the horn-laden, ska-influenced tune.

You can download “Down with the Ship” now via digital outlets.

“Down with the Ship” will appear on Rundgren’s upcoming album Space Force, which is due out in 2021. It’s the second track from the record to be released, following “Espionage” featuring Iraqi-Canadian hip-hop artist Narcy.

Cuomo, meanwhile, will release a new album with Weezer called Van Weezer next May. Earlier this week, the band announced that they were dedicating the record to the late Eddie Van Halen, who died Tuesday at age 65.
