David Crosby has long wanted to work with Steely Dan's Donald Fagen. The wish has come true with the two music legends collaborating on "Rodriguez for a Night" on Crosby’s new album ‘For Free.’
Crosby said, “I’m so honored [Donald] gave us a set of words. I’ve been asking him for a couple of years. He started to trust us, I think. It took a long time, but he gave us a set of words that are really wonderful and we just wrote the [crap] out of them.”
David has said Steely Dan is his favorite band. He wrote the music for the song with has son (and bandmate) James Raymond. It sounds a lot like a Steely Dan song.
Crosby’s new album ‘For Free’ will be released on July 2nd.
