OK Todd fans, you’ve been waiting for this. There is a new David Hasselhoff album being released this Friday, September 27th called Open Your Eyes that features Todd on the song Jump In My Car. I’m eating a hamburger off my living room carpet in anticipation of this one.



:shock:

He 'does' want to work! Todd Rundgren says he's preparing new opera project and collaborative

Todd Rundgren currently is on the road with the star-studded “It Was Fifty Years Ago Today” tribute tour to The Beatles‘ “White Album,” but the lauded singer/songwriter has a variety of interesting music projects on the horizon.
Rundgren tells ABC Audio that among the projects “is a new original work” he says is like an opera or an operetta that will premiere in Amsterdam in November 2020.
“It’s a collaboration between me and [prog-rock guitarist, keyboardist and composer] Mike Keneally, and it’s…kind of based on a story line, so it’s got an arc to it and a plot.”
The 71-year-old musician also says he’s still preparing a previously reported new album that will be similar to his 2017 studio effort White Knight, which featured collaborations with Daryl Hall, Steely Dan‘s Donald Fagen, Joe Walsh and Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor, among others.
“The last one worked out really well for everyone involved, so figured why mess with success for a change,” Rundgren notes. Earlier this year, Todd told ABC Audio among the artists who may be featured on the upcoming record are Weezer‘s Rivers Cuomo, Crowded House frontman and Fleetwood Mac touring member Neil Finn and The Roots.
Meanwhile, Rundgren has been contributing to various other albums too. He plays guitar on a track on actor/singer David Hasselhoff‘s new record, Open Your Eyes, and reveals that he also lent his guitar talents to an upcoming solo project by ex-Yes singer Jon Anderson.
In addition, Todd says, “I did the lead vocal on a version of [King Crimson‘s] ’21st Century Schizoid Man,’ which is on a [forthcoming] Greg Lake tribute album.”
The “It Was Fifty Years Ago Today” tour is plotted out through a December 15 show in Jackson, California.

If you go try to to get tickets up front. It’s not a very good venue. It’s like a big cafeteria type room with portable chairs all on the same level. Check on rooms soon too. Last time I went there I couldn’t get a room at the casino and had to stay at a hotel in town a few miles away.
