NEW YORK, April 2 (UPI) -- Patti Smith's 11th studio album, "Banga," which she recorded in New York, is set for release this June, Columbia Records announced.

Due out June 5, the CD will be the punk rock icon's first collection of original material since 2004, when she made her Columbia Records debut with "trampin.'"

"April Fool," featuring Tom Verlaine, the first single from "Banga," became available digitally Sunday.

Other featured guests on the CD include Jack Petruzzelli, Smith's son Jackson and her daughter Jesse Paris.

"Inspired by Smith's unique dreams and observations, 'Banga's' poetic lyrics are a reflection of our complex world -- a world that is rife with chaos and beauty," the record label said in a news release. "Praised for her storytelling abilities, Smith has crafted an album that captures a wide range of human experience."
