Rock legend ALAN PARSONS has called on former MONTY PYTHON star John Cleese to help boost his first album in five years.

Cleese joins Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and The Crystal Method among the guests on Parsons' A VALID PATH.

The British funnyman joins the late Orson Welles and features on narrative sections of the album.

A Valid Path also features Parsons' son JEREMY on computer programming and acclaimed California songwriter PJ OLSEN on lead vocals and sequencing.
