Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by the legendary TODD RUNDGREN 'State'. Todd's latest musical vision is a contemporary fusion of rock, soul and electronica that is at once danceable, groundbreaking, spiritual, challenging and infectious. STATE continues the tradition of boundary-breaking works from this visionary genius, and its finely crafted songs once again push the creative envelope. As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and interactive artist, Todd Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music. With the release of his new album STATE, Todd will tour in support of the release beginning in April in the USA and then continuing in Scandinavia, Benelux and the UK in May / June and throughout the remainder of 2013. This special limited deluxe 2 CD digipack collectors edition features an additional CD recorded at a sold-out concert at The Paradiso, Amsterdam on 11th November 2012 featuring Todd Rundgren and the Metropole Orchestra. This stunning performance saw Todd and this fine orchestra perform specially commissioned orchestral arrangements of Todd's classic repertoire and is a unique souvenir of an incredible and unique concert.
