Originally scheduled for release last summer, the collaborative album from nu disco artist Lindstrøm, garage rock/producer stalwart Todd Rundgren, and Emil Nikolaisen of Swedish neo-shoegazers Serena-Maneesh is finally coming out. Dubbed Ruddans, the record has a May 5th release date via Smalltown Supersound.
The effort is actually a single 39-minute song split into 12 sections. Part five of the opus, “Put Your Arms Around Me”, has been shared as a first listen. The track is a cacophony of intergalactic electronics and rocketing guitar riffs, a mind-melting introduction to what the label calls the LP’s “cosmic mix of soul, synth, pop and disco.” Listen in below.
