Two more Steely Dan shows + that Fagen produced album almost here

Steely Dan have added two more spring dates to the 2017 tour.

April 17: San Diego - Humphrey's

April 25: Santa Barbara - SB Bowl

And the album by the band Oh Whitney that Donald Fagen started producing in 2013 is finally ready for release. It has been delayed a few times and there's still no set date, but the band has said that there will be new music this spring.
Technically that doesn't mean the music must be from the 11 track record, it could be something completely new, but...

Read the artcle over on the Fort Worh Weekly for more on the record.

Main points from a Steely Dan/Fagen fan view:

- The band Oh Whitney and Fagen met in San Miguel in 2012 and Donald said he wanted to work with them.
- Recording started in 2013 and has been done on and off over the past couple of years.
- The record consists of 11 tracks. Donald supplied almost all keyboard parts, sings on a few of the songs and had a big part in the arrengements of several tracks.

And the band has changed its name from Oh Whitney and now goes by the frontman's name: Peter More.

Here's a 25 second taste:
