Todd version 2017

So another year begins and what do we have to look forward to in 2017 from Mr Rundgren? Well two major things:
  • The Autobiography (first half 2017)
  • New Album (first half 2017)
The Autobiography has been in the works for a couple of decades, so it is good to know that it is almost a reality. As for the new album I'm expected a move away from the style of the last two albums and a return to a more soul / band feel, though I could be wrong.  

Teenage album lists

"Once upon a time, you would read about bands before you would hear them. You would then imagine what they sounded like. Sometimes, an artist would pretty much sound just like you thought they would-The Troggs are a good example. Other times, you were left thinking, wait, this is what they were getting so excited about? Todd Rundgren, for instance, is infinitely better described than heard." - Tim Sommer – " Your Facebook Teenage '10 Albums' Lists Matter More Than You Think" [New York Observer, 17 jan , 2017]
