Paul Simon has released the opening track from his forthcoming studio album. The new take on his own song, originally featured on 1973’s There Goes Rhymin’ Simon, is just one of the tunes from the legendary songwriter’s back catalog that he reimagines on In The Blue Light.

The release of the new album, announced earlier this month, will coincide with the final leg of Simon’s Homeward Bound – Farewell Tour, which wraps up with the Final Performance on September 22 in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
Among the iconic jazz musicians joining Simon on In The Blue Light are trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, guitarist Bill Frisell, and drummers Jack DeJohnette and Steve Gadd.
In The Blue Light is available now for pre-order.
Over the course of his career, Paul Simon has released 18 studio albums (including five as half of Simon & Garfunkel), and received 16 Grammy Awards. He received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003, was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2002 and is a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.
