Paul Simon Releases Tracklist, Info on Upcoming Album 'So Beautiful Or So What'
Folk master Paul Simon has just released details about his upcoming album, according to Consequence of Sound.
So Beautiful Or So What will be a 10-track LP, and it's scheduled to be released on April 12.
Simon has put out a music video for the first track, entitled "Getting Ready For Christmas Day." It's a little odd that he's releasing a song about winter in April, but why the hell not make a track that sounds a little like the Steve Miller Band Christmas song this time of the year.
Stereogum has also made another track called "The Afterlife" available for streaming. Stereogum is right: the guitar on this track definitely resembles that of Vampire Weekend.
Both songs have got that classic Paul Simon sound. They're a little poppy, they're very catchy, and they tell a nice story.
