Paul Simon ‘Graceland’ Gets An EDM Make-Over

by Paul Cashmere on May 18, 2018

in News

Paul Simon’s iconic ‘Graceland’ is about to undergo a reformation with a complete make-over by Groove Armada, Richy Ahmed, MK & KC Lights and a stack of other DJs and producers.

‘Graceland – The Remixes’ has been approved by Simon for release through Sony Music.

The Simon make-over album comes just weeks after Elton John was given the tribute treatment with ‘Revamp’. Both artists have recently announced that their current tours will be their last tours.

Simon said that while he will no longer tour he will still occasionally perform. After this coming tour, I anticipate doing the occasional performance in a (hopefully) acoustically pristine hall, and to donate those earnings to various philanthropic organizations, particularly those whose objective is to save the planet, ecologically.

Meanwhile, a whole new audience can discover the music of Paul Simon via ‘Graceland – The Remixes’ due June 1, 2018.

1. “Homeless (Joris Voorn Final Remix)”
2. “Gumboots (Joyce Muniz Remix)”
