Steely Dan frontman Donald Fagen will release his third solo album, Morph the Cat, in March. Whereas his 1982 debut The Nightfly viewed the future from an adolescent's eyes, and 1993's Kamakiriad viewed it from middle age, Morph, says Fagen, "is looking toward the endings of things."
"It's the album that's closest to my vision of how [death] would sound," says Fagen. "I don't know if I could do much better."
The album closest to my vision of how death would sound has to be "No Jacket Required."
