Billed as a "spiritual magnum opus," Norwegian disco mastermind Hans-Peter Lindstrøm (or simply just Lindstrøm), longtime musician Todd Rundgren, and Emil Nikolaisen (of the Oslo-based Serena-Maneesh outfit) have collaborated on a new album, Runddans, which will see its release this spring via the Smalltown Supersound label. The album will be presented as one single track that spans 39 minutes, and is said to fuse Rundgren's "trippy... blue-eyed soul" with Lindstrøm's "disco epics" and Nikolaisen's "studio trickery" to result in a "cosmic mix of soul, synth, pop, and disco." Furthermore, the collaboration is said to have originated from a wintery 2012 studio session in Oslo, where the three musicians met and began to develop what would become Runddans.
Lindstrøm's, Rundgren's, Nikolaisen's collaborative LP will officially land on May 5 via Smalltown Supersound. Before then, the forthcoming record's artwork can be found below, along with the titles for the elongated musical piece's various movements (which will be split across four sides of vinyl). In addition, Lindstrøm revealed a new solo single, "Home Tonight," just last week, a stream of which can be found here.
