Steely Dan have confirmed that they are working on a new album, their first since 2003's Everything Must Go. Group members Walter Becker and Donald Fagan broke the news of the forthcoming release in a press conference this week.
"It's in the air, it really is," joked Becker. "It's just a smell now. The next thing is then you taste it, then you start to feel it. You know how this goes."
He added the release will include "some songs, these really good ones that we only half-finished back in, like, 1984 that we keep threatening to work on."
He concluded: "We did finish a couple of those. We have a bunch of things. Put it this way - any other band in the world would have finished or mixed these old things that were lying around and issued them with a great ta-da fanfare. But we just don't. We don't play it like that, necessarily. It's not the way we roll."
