Paul Simon To Release New Album

Paul Simon is set to release a new album that will see him breathe new life into ten of his all-time favourite songs.

The legendary songwriter’s 14th studio album ‘In The Blue Light’ will be released on 07 September 2018 to coincide with the final leg of Homeward Bound – Farewell Tour.

Paul Simon commented, “This album consists of songs that I thought were almost right, or were odd enough to be overlooked the first time around. Re-doing arrangements, harmonic structures, and lyrics that didn’t make their meaning clear, gave me time to clarify in my own head what I wanted to say, or realize what I was thinking and make it more easily understood.”

The album, produced by Simon and Roy Halee who have worked together since the 1960s, will feature a talented group of musicians collaborating on ten of the artist’s favourite songs spanning his entire music career. His extensive back catalogue expands 14 studio albums, plus five as half of Simon & Garfunkel.
