The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney, The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Iggy Pop will all feature on Ke$ha's new album 'Warrior'.

The album, which is the follow-up to the eccentric pop singer's 2010 debut LP 'Animal', will be released on December 3 in the UK and December 4 in the US.

'Warrior' contains a star-studded list of guest writers, producers and collaborators, with the likes of Bonnie McKee, Fun's Nate Ruess, Ben Folds, Greg Kurstin, Ammo, Kojak, Max Martin, Billboard and all set to feature. The album has been overseen by songwriting supreme Dr Luke.

The album will feature a total of 12 tracks on the standard edition and 16 tracks on the deluxe edition. A single titled 'Die Young' will be released next Tuesday (September 25).

Speaking about the record, Ke$ha said: "I've been working for a year on this new record and have collaborated with some of my idols. This process has been long and intense and I couldn't be more stoked to share this music. I hope with 'Warrior' my fans get to know me in a much more raw and vulnerable way."

The singer had previously claimed that her second album will usher in the dawn of a new genre called "cock pop", saying: "Wailing on an epic track with Doctor Luke & Benny Blanco. This is the dawn of a new genre of music: COCK POP!!!"

The tracklisting for 'Warrior' is as follows:

'Die Young'
'Thinking Of You'
'Crazy Kids'
'Wherever You Are'
'Dirty Love'
'Only Wanna Dance With You'
'Beautiful Life'
'Love Into The Light'
