Opis wydawcy:
O swoim najnowszym albumie Paul Simon powiedział: "To najlepsza rzecz jaką zrobiłem od ponad 20 lat". Nad produkcją materiału czuwał stały współpracownik Simona, Phil Ramone (znany ze współpracy m.in. z Bobem Dylanem, Paulem McCartneyem, Eltonem Johnem i Arethą Franklin). Paul Simon zdobył sławę w połowie lat 60-tych ubiegłego wieku w duecie Simon & Garfunkel, który wylansował takie przeboje jak "Sound Of Silence", "Homeward Bound", "Mrs. Robinson" (wykorzystana w filmie "Absolwent"), "The Boxer", "Cecilia" czy "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Formacja uważana za jedną z najważniejszych grup amerykańskiego folkrocka zakończyła działalność w 1970 roku wraz z wydaniem albumu "Bridge Over Troubled Water", który rozszedł się w nakładzie ponad 25 milionów egzemplarzy. Paul Simon z powodzeniem kontynuował karierę solową. Jego płyty "There Goes Rhymin' Simon", "Still Crazy After All This Years", a przede wszystkim, "Graceland" z 1986 roku przyniosły mu uznanie krytyków i publiczności oraz liczne nagrody, w tym tą najwazniejszą - Grammy.


Editor's info:
Produced by Phil Ramone and Paul Simon, the ten track album - his 12th solo studio record - sees Simon crafting his songs around harmony and song structure instead of the beat- driven form of writing which has inspired him since the mid-1980s.

"Since 'Graceland', I've always made the record based on either making the tracks or the percussion first," Simon told Rolling Stone. "This time the stimuli was a guitar in my lap. That takes me back to 'Still Crazy After All These Years' or 'Something So Right'."

Opening with a song for all seasons 'Getting Ready for Christmas Day', the album starts as it means to go on, with a dry wit, keen political awareness (both personal and global) and a damn fine melody. 'The Afterlife' muses on the next world over a laid back Soca beat and the taut 'Love Is Eternal Sacred Light' on the power of good and evil while the tender 'Questions for the Angels' tells its tale of messengers of god and the homeless wandering the streets of Brooklyn and the title track gives listeners a chicken gumbo recipe.

Recording the demos in the equipment packed cottage next to his house in Connecticut, guitarist Vincent Nguini and percussionist Steve Shehan offered up their talents, as did Grizzly Bear's drummer, Chris Bear, who contributed electronic drum parts. Taking more than a year to perfect, Simon has revealed that 'So Beautiful or So What' reminds him of his very first solo release, his acclaimed, self-titled 1972 album.
