Everything Must Go is the ninth and most recent album by Steely Dan, originally released June 10, 2003. It was Steely Dan's second album following their 20-year studio hiatus, which spanned from 1980 through 2000. Everything Must Go was released three years after their Grammy-winning and certified double-platinum release Two Against Nature. It was a departure from their previous release in that the arrangements were scaled back, the solos were kept tighter, and the album had a more overall live feel. It is also the first time Walter Becker was featured on lead vocals on an official Steely Dan release (Slang of Ages). It also featured Becker and Fagen as instrumentalists much more than some of their previous releases, especially their late '70s work. Becker played bass on every song as well as contributing several of the guitar solos, and Fagen provided most of the keyboard work as well as the synthesizer solos.
Received to mixed reviews and lackluster sales, it is the only Steely Dan studio album not to have been certified at least gold.
