Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow

is set to release his first solo album in five years - with a little help from ex-girlfriend . The guitarist hasn't worked on an individual project since 2005's "", and will release his 19th disc, "", in September.

The album features guest appearances from his ex-lover Crow - who he dated in 1996 - among others. In a statement, Clapton says, "It's an eclectic collection of songs that weren't really on the map - and I like it so much because if it's a surprise to the fans, that's only because it's a surprise to me, as well."

The Brit's last project, 2006's "The Road to Escondido", was a collaboration with singer/songwriter JJ Cale.
