Universal Music has announced the release of the first live Steely Dan album in over 25 years. Northeast Corridor, a 12-track compilation, was captured across tour dates at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, The Met Philadelphia and more, and showcases selections from Steely Dan’s extraordinary catalog of hits. This week, Universal Music made available two singles from the upcoming compilation — “Hey Nineteen” and “Reelin’ in the Years.” We are proud to include a version of “Reelin’ in the Years – Live at the Mohegan Sun” in this week’s Editors’ Choice Top 10 playlist. Stream it via the player below. (And take note: Steely Dan’s “Absolutely Normal Tour ’21,” kicks off with four performances in Miami, Florida, October 5-9. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com.)
