For over five decades, Todd Rundgren has been contributing to music through songwriting, production, and much more. For this episode of “New & Approved,” Rundgren joined Matt Pinfield to discuss all of his impressive feats.
Todd first talks with Matt about his upcoming solo album “Space Force,” which will be released on October 14th. The record will mark Rundgren’s 26th solo studio album. “Space Force” is a collaborative album, so Todd tells Matt about many of the artists who worked with him on the album including Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, Neil Finn, and Rick Nielsen.
Along with his own music, Todd Rundgren has produced an incredible number of iconic albums. Todd tells Matt some fascinating tales about working with bands such as Badfinger, Grand Funk Railroad, and the New York Dolls. We also get to learn about the “Celebrating Bowie” tour Rundgren is a part of, recording side 4 of “Something/Anything?,” the New York music scene during the 1970s, and so much more.
