The next Steely Dan album...

... is just around the corner. And it will be yet another Best Of/Greatest Hits.

With the tour running from June to September the idea to get a fresh collection of previously released songs out there isn't that far fetched.

The person who told us about the "new" Steely Dan CD shall remain anonymous. He did not have any track listing or other information, but if we were in charge we'd get it out early July at the latest. Let's make it a double. And why not produce some new artwork and liner notes to attract the completist buyer as well.

All here at Radio Dupree are eager to see if the new album goes back to the "tradition" of not showing Donald Fagen and Walter Becker on the cover. A tradition broken by 2007's The Millennium Collection. (No, the alluding shadows on Two Against Nature and The Definitive Collection doesn't really count, do they?)

Pictured: The three latest hits collections from 2007, 2006 and 2000. More to come, apparently...
