Postcards From A Young Man will be released on September 20.
The musician told XFM: "It's pretty unbelievable, we've got Duff McKagan (ex-Guns N’ Roses) on the record, which is truly awe-inspiring for me.
"We’ve also got John Cale, ex-Velvet Underground member, playing on the album and we've got Ian McCulloch singing on a track. Some of our heroes are just on the record with us."
Bradfield has dubbed the record "one last shot at mass communication".
He added: "It's got a bit of a classic rock vibe about it, but it's still got that shiny, rock 'n' roll punk energy we've always had. We still write about the same things, we're still energised by the same subjects that made us write songs back when we were 15, 16 years old."
