The Strokes' Julian Casablancas has co-written a song with Digitalism for the dance duo's new album.

The song is called 'Forrest Gump' and features on the German pair's new album 'I Love You Dude', out on June 20.

Casablancas and the band collaborated on the song over email, although the frontman does not sing on it. Digitalism's Jens Moelle said the track was about "constantly keeping on moving otherwise you’ll be in some sort of psychic peril."

'I Love You Dude' will be the follow-up to Digitalism's 2007 album 'Idealism'.

The band are set to play London's XOYO venue on June 13.

The tracklisting of the album is:

'Stratosphere'
'2 Hearts'
'Circles'
'Blitz'
'Forrest Gump'
'ReeperBahn'
'Antibiotics'
'Just Gazin'
'Miami Showdown'
'Encore'
