listen hear! Song of the Day: Todd Rundgren & Sparks reunite for 'Your Fandango'

Todd Rundgren/Sparks via Facebook

listen hear! spotlights a song we like and think you will too!

We’d expect nothing less! ‘Your Fandango’, the new collaboration between Todd Rundgren& Sparks, is a fun, over-the-top operatic blast of pop. They had first worked together in 1971 on Sparks debut album, originally released under the name Halfnelson  with Todd producing.

Todd told MOJO Magazine; “I was interviewed for a documentary about Sparks, and when it was over, they had secreted the Mael brothers in the next room, & we had a reunion on camera for the first time in nearly 50 years. That was a lot of fun, and that’s what precipitated this collaboration.”

The song will first be released as a 7'' single July 30th. It will be included with a series of collaborations Rundgren is putting out as a new album 'Space Force'. It will also feature a previous single 'Down With The Ship' with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.  The Sparks documentary will be released June 18th.

Catch the listen hear! Song of the Day each weekday morning at 11:10.
