New Paul Simon Album Pushed Until After ‘Farewell’ Tour

Music News

Paul Simon’s upcoming studio set has been pushed back until later this year, according to his biographer. Out now is Robert Hilburn’s new book, Paul Simon: The Life, which revealed that Simon has been working on album of his older songs that he feels have fallen through the cracks and deserve a second chance. Although no release date was announced, industry whispers were hinting the album would be out in time for his current “Farewell” tour. Among the tunes Simon mentioned for the project were 1975’s “Some Folks Lives Roll Easy” from Still Crazy After All These Years, 1983’s “Rene And Georgette Magritte With Their Dog After The War” from Hearts And Bones, 2000’s “Darling Lorraine” from You’re The One, and 2011’s “Questions For The Angels” from So Beautiful Or So What.

Robert Hilburn shed light on the still-untitled upcoming set: “I think it’s pretty much completed — that’s the impression I got. Originally, it was going to be released before the tour, so that he could play some of the songs. I think he still might play some of the songs in the tour, but it wasn’t ready. He’s not going to put it out ’cause the tour’s ready.”
