Paul Simon, Songwriter

Paul Simon has personally selected the tracks on the new retrospective album, Songwriter. In a statement Simon explained, “I think of myself as a songwriter first, the recording artist and performer in me follow in the writer’s footsteps.” The album includes some unique selections, including a live version of “The Sound of Silence” from Simon’s 2011 concert at New York’s Webster Hall and Aretha Franklin’s studio take on “Bridge Over Trouble Water.” The album also features a cut from Simon’s massive Central Park show as well as material from this year’s So Beautiful or So What. The album leads up to Simon’s 70th birthday on October 13.
