Donald Fagen on Martha's next one

Martha Wainwright. Photo: Ken SchlesDonald Fagen will make an appearance on Martha Wainwright's next album; I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too due June 10.
Also on bord for her third album: Pete Townshed (The Who), Garth Hudson (The Band), her brother Rufus Wainwright and mother Kate McGarrigle.
Full track listing on Filter Magazine's homepage.

All this has us wondering when the record by Michael Leonhart and Daniel Yvinec will see the light of day. Apparently Donald sung on three songs and even played a little keyboards on the album first set for an early 2007 release.

Whenever Libby is in town you'll get an invitation and there's Donald in the corner and you happen to have a demo that you give him and...
