Steely Dan – New Tunes?
Steely Dan’s Walter Becker and Donald Fagen feel they have another album in them.
Becker says, “It’s in the air, it really is. It’s just a smell now. The next thing is then you taste it, then you start to feel it. You know how this goes.”
Fagen adds that they do have some unfinished songs from 1984, to which Becker says, “We did finish a couple of those. We have a bunch of things. Put it this way; any other band in the world would have finished or mixed these old things that were lying around and issued them with a great ta-da fanfare. But we just don’t. We don’t play it like that, necessarily. It’s not the way we roll.”
Steely Dan’s last album was 2003’s Everything Must Go. They start their Mood Swings – 8 Miles to Pancake tour on Friday in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
