Paul Simon Recreates Lesser Known Songs For ‘Into The Blue Light’

Paul Simon has gone back to the studio to make a new album with old songs.

‘Into The Blue Light’ songs date back to 1973’s ‘There Goes Rhymnin’ Simon’ and is as recent as 2011’s ‘So Beautiful Or So What’.

Four of the songs are from 2000’s ‘You’re The One’. “Darling Lorraine’, I thought, was one of the best songs I ever wrote,” Paul Simon said.

None of the songs from the album ever became hits. “The idea was to take songs that I thought were really good songs but didn’t get much attention when they first came out. It was very easy because the musicianship was extraordinary,” he said.

‘Into The Blue Light’ will be released on September 7.
