Last week Todd Rundgren was interviewed on WXRV in Boston about a song he loves. Todd chose "Don't Dream It's Over", and talked about why he loves the song. Interestingly, he also reveals that he has recently been in contact with Neil Finn and they have a collaboration "in the works".
Todd's current album pairs him with other artists, and he's working on an additional collaborative album.

This for me is definitely something to look forward to.  I so want to hear this.  I hope we don't have to wait too long to hear how this collaboration works out.

Now I love Todd's work, but he has a checkered past when it comes to collaboration.  Andy Partridge had a pissing match on Twitter regarding Todd's production work on an XTC album.  I've read that Todd tends to impose his will and wizardry on those acts he's produced.   With that being said, Neil's More Than One of You on his latest has that Todd feeling.  

I'm curious.  If they can connect musically on equal footing, I'm hopeful.  I would be interested to hear what they concoct.

 

 

Very interested in hearing what Neil/Todd come up with together. Looks like Todd has album projects where he collaborates with established artists on one song each. Sounds like Neil isn't sleep much these days with so many projects on the table.

Yes, that album was Skylarking. Andy about came to blows over Todd's production at the time, but has since admitted that Todd was right, and loves the way it turned out.

Agreed - great song. I'm not sure the production is the best, particular the vocals. But, the song itself is great as always.
