Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame nominee Todd Rundgren has reunited with pop and rock duo Sparks for a new single, “Your Fandango,” 50 years after their first collaboration. It was Rundgren who produced Sparks’ 1971 debut album.
“Your Fandango” is the third single from Rundgren’s upcoming album Space Force. The album also features collaborations with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and hip hop artist Narcy.
Rundgren recently completed a highly successful virtual tour, while the movie musical Annette, written by Sparks’ Ron and Russell Mael, is set to open the Cannes Film Festival.
A documentary about the pair’s career, The Sparks Brothers, will be released in U.K. cinemas on July 30. It was the filming of Rundgren’s interview for the docufilm that reunited him with Sparks and formed the idea of collaboration.
“It’s been a truly heart-warming experience to once again be working with Todd, our first-ever producer, after a brief 50-year hiatus,” the Mael brothers said.
“It’s been a long way since Simple Ballet, but we finally got the old dance troupe back together,” Rundgren added.
