(Radio.com) Jerry Lee Lewis may be 78 years old, but the rock and country legend has been plenty busy lately. This fall, the Killer is set to release not only a new album, Rock & Roll Time, but also the memoir Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story, which he wrote with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Rick Bragg.

Rock & Roll Time is the rock and roll pioneer's third record in a decade, following 2006′s Last Man Standing and 2010′s Mean Old Man. The new album includes some very high profile guests including Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Neil Young, former Band guitarist Robbie Robertson, E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren and country-soul artist Shelby Lynne.

The songs are a mix of styles and genres including material from Chuck Berry ("Little Queenie," "Promised Land"), Bob Dylan ("Stepchild"), Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Mississippi Kid") and Jimmie Rodgers ("Blues Like Midnight").

Rolling Stone premiered the album's title track, "Rock & Roll Time," which was cowritten by Kris Kristofferson, Bob Neuwirth and Roger McGuinn and originally appeared on Kristofferson's 1974 album Spooky Lady's Sideshow. Lewis' version features guitarists Doyle Bramhall II, Jon Brion and Kenny Lovelace as well as vocalists Vonda Shepard and Bernard Fowler. More details
