Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen combs over his new solo album, his legendary band and his future in the new issue of Uncut, dated December 2012, and out on Tuesday (October 23).
Fagen also discusses the perils of ageing, as well as why he believes women prefer his solo work to Steely Dan, in the interview.
Asked whether he considers his best work to be ahead of him, the keyboardist and singer says: “I do know I’m no longer interested in my past work. I’ll never listen to this album again.
“All of my past work, it’s garbage to me, see.”
Beck has unveiled a video for his track "Heart Is A Drum".
The track features on the singer's 2013 album Morning Phase . For the video, Beck worked with British music video director Sophie Muller, who is best known for her collaborations with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Blur, Garbage and a host of others.
Atoms For Peace have been announced as the headliner for two festivals this July.
Thom Yorke’s side project with Flea, Nigel Godrich, Mauro Refosco and Joey Waronker will play The Melt! Festival in Ferropolis, Germany and the Exit Festival in Novi Sad, Serbia.
Melt!, now in its 16th year, will also include Alt-J, Django Django, Dan Deacon and The Knife. It takes place between July 19 and 21. Tickets are €119 (£102.85) plus fees including a €5 garbage disposal surcharge.
Dave Grohl has been back in the studio with former Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic and Garbage's Butch Vig.
The trio are rumoured to be working on the Foo Fighters frontman's new documentary on Sound City Studios, where Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind was recorded with Vig on production duties.
Announcing the hook up on his Twitter page, Vig wrote:
The last 24 hours have been surreal! Had a great gig at the El Rey last night, and spent today recording with Dave, Krist and special guest!
