After working together on the New York Dolls' influential debut in 1973, the group reunited with producer Todd Rundgren this winter to record their fourth studio album, 'Cause I Sez So, set for a May 4th U.K. release on Atco Records (U.S. release is May 5th).

Recorded at Utopia Sound Studio in Kauai, Hawaii, the album features 11 original compositions and a new version of Trash, that originally featured on their milestone 1973 debut album. "It was amazing working with Todd again, and I think we were able to evoke the special sound of our first album and drag it by the hair into the present," says front man Johansen.

With his soaring voice and arena-rock fluency, Todd Rundgren seemed destined for hit-after-hit superstardom when he released his third album, the entirely self-recorded Something/Anything, in 1972. Looking back, though, it was clear that Rundgren had too many experimental itches to scratch — and the progression of his career has arguably been more satisfying as a result. Sure, he routinely takes erratic turns, and his ventures into electronic music and prog haven't necessarily aged well, but you can't deny that Rundgren has stuck to his guns. And when he's on, he sure can wail.
