New Simple Plan album will be cybercast


NEW YORK -- Canadian rock outfit Simple Plan will introduce its as-yet-untitled new album Monday during a cybercast on that will feature its first single, "When I'm Gone." The cut was co-produced by Timbaland associate Nate "Danjahandz" Hills, who also worked on album tracks "The End" and "Generation."

"When I'm Gone" will also hit radio Monday, while its ringtone will be available exclusively that day from Simple Plan's Web site. Fans who pre-order the new album through will receive the "When I'm Gone" download for free.
