Paul Simon will release Stranger To Stranger, his thirteenth solo album on June 3rd 2016.
The record—his first since 2011’s acclaimed So Beautiful or So What—ushers the listener into a world where expectations are exceeded, as they were thirty years ago with another masterwork, Graceland.
Produced by Simon and his longtime collaborator Roy Halee, the percussively textured LP was in part inspired by Harry Partch, the 20th century American composer who created custom-made instruments in microtonal tunings.
Paul Simon appeared on BBC’s Later with Jools this week; watch him perform the album’s first single ‘Wristband‘ with special guests Lake Street Dive. And check out his interview with Ken Bruce on BBCRadio2.
During his distinguished career Paul Simon has been the recipient of many honours and awards including 12 Grammy Awards. In 2003 he was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his work as half of the duo Simon and Garfunkel. He is a member of The Songwriters Hall of Fame, and is in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Simon and Garfunkel and as a solo artist. His song “Mrs. Robinson” from the motion picture “The Graduate” was named in the top ten of The American Film Institute‘s 100 Years 100 Songs.
