The New York Dolls’ today confirmed the U.K. release date of Monday May 4th for their highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Cause I Sez So. The band has reunited with Todd Rundgren, producer of their influential 1973 debut. The new album will be released by Atco Records (U.S. release date is Tuesday May 5th).

The album was recorded at Utopia Sound Studio in Kauai, Hawaii, and features original Dolls David Johansen (vocals) and Sylvain Sylvain (guitar), plus Steve Conte (guitar), Brian Delaney (drums), and Sami Yaffa (bass). The album cover artwork is designed by Matt Taylor at Varnish Studio Inc, with photography by Max Lakner.

The 12-song track list features 11 original compositions, including the first single “'Cause I Sez So” and a new version of “Trash,” which was on their 1973 debut album. “It was amazing working with Todd again, and I think we were able to evoke the special sound of our first album and drag it by the hair into the present,” says front man Johansen.
