LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The New York Dolls and record producer Todd Rundgren have been
reunited for the first time in 36 years. Rundgren will produce the Dolls'
new album at his studio on the island of Kauai. Production is scheduled to
start in January 2009.
This is the first time in 36 years since Rundgren originally produced the
New York Dolls eponymous debut album "The New York Dolls" which included the
classic songs "Personality Crisis", "Trash", "Jet Boy" and "Private World".
Rundgren will be reunited with original Dolls founding members, David
Johansen (vocals) and Sylvain Sylvain (guitar, vocals).
"We're really excited to be working with Todd again," says David Johansen.
"We're hoping to recapture the same magic on the forthcoming album."
The album, which is yet untitled, will be released on the Atco label through
Warner Brothers. The Atco label has been specially re-launched. The New
York Dolls are one of the first signings to the label. The Dolls will
follow the release of the new album with a world tour in 2009. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
