Song of the Day: Donald Fagen, “New Frontier”

This is the first track on side 2 of Donald Fagen’s first solo album, 1982’s The Nightfly. Steely Dan had separated the year before (maybe more like "went on hiatus"), and this was his first project without Walter Becker. It was released as a single in 1983 and reached #34 on the Adult Contemporary chart, but only #70 on the Hot 100.
