Johannson and Sylvain get their first ever producer back in the studio

Glam rockers the New York Dolls have announced that they are to get Todd Rundgren to produce their next album, the first time they have enlisted his help since their eponymous debut in 1973.

Founding New York Dolls members David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain are to reunite with their original producer in January, to record the new, as-yet-untitled album. Having made some festival appearences this Summer, the Dolls also say they plan on touring once the album is complete.

Frontman Johansen commented about the reunion saying: “We’re really excited to be working with Todd again. We’re hoping to recapture the same magic on the forthcoming album [that was on the debut].”

Meanwhile, Rudgren will be headlining a couple of shows in the UK later this month, playing the Norwich Waterfront on November 22 and the London Forum on November 23.
