Donald Fagen: 2010 tour news and new album in 2011

Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs & Michael McDonald's tour as The Rhythm Dukes Of September will run between August 19 and October 2. The complete tour schedule is expected to be announced on Monday (June 14).

Donald's new album has mainly been recorded "away from studios" and is, once finished, set for release in 2011.

These are the main news in this Reuter's article published by numerous sites today. You can read it here.

UPDATE January 4, 2012:
Since we just noticed a link to this blogpost from the Wikipedia page on Donald Fagen we thought we might update it with what news there's been inbetween:

October 1, 2010: Donald Fagen friday quips
July 7, 2011: Dukes of September (Fagen, McDonald, Scaggs) touring in 2012
July 27, 2011: Donald Fagen in the studio
October 1, 2011: No Dukes of September DVD/TV

That's it for now! As 2011 passed without any more news about the solo album most feel sometime in 2012 is when it will arrive. Maybe Donald will play a couple of new songs on the yet-to-be-annnounced Dukes of September tour?

Oh. And the title of Donald Fagens new album; Soul Instinct, came from a fan page done as a joke. Complete with song titles and a cover. Just a joke, but it still was taken as the truth and is now quoted on among other sites Wikipedia!

UPDATE February 5, 2012: As we've written in the comments to this post we mixed up the fan page joke about the new Fagen album with the title listing on Wikipedia. Two different things. As we'll sort out in a blog post later today. A post we'll link to here.

UPDATE February 8, 2012: It took a couple of days extra but here's the promised blog post.

Kwack Zany is the new album

We did mix it up. When we came across the Soulful Instinct title we wrongly thought it was the fake done-as-a-joke infor page about the new album that we'd seen before. That page being the Kwack Zany one.

Sorry for the mistake and we've done a little more checking and will post it all as a Sunday read later today (February 5, 2012). Check the post above for working link.
