Steely Dan's Donald Fagen to release new solo album

Steely Dan Donald Fagen is scheduled to release a new solo album, Sunken Condos, on October 16, according to the musician's website.

Sunken Condos will be Fagen's fourth solo album. His first three solo albums were The Nightfly (1982), Kamakiriad (1993) and Morph The Cat (2006).

Sunken Condos will feature eight Fagen originals and one cover, which Fagen describes on his website as "an Ashkenazi recasting of Isaac Hayes' Out Of The Ghetto".

Musicians on the record include long-term Steely Dan guitarist Jon Herington, the Steely Dan Horns and Steely Dan bassist Freddie Washington.

Recently, Fagen played along side Boz Skaggs and Michael McDonald in Dukes Of September.
