Veteran singer Tom Waits and photographer/filmmaker Anton Corbijn have joined forces for a new limited edition coffee table book.

'77-'11 features 200 portraits Corbijn has taken of his friend, and musings from the Downtown Train hitmaker.

The book features an introduction from director Jim Jarmusch.

A statement about the project from Waits reads: "Anton picks up a small black box, points it at you and all the leaves fall from the trees. The shadows now are long and scary, the house looks completely abandoned and I look like a handsome... undertaker.

"I love working with Anton... I won't go jumping off rocks wearing only a Dracula cape for just anyone."

The book will be released in May (13).
