At 74, the legendary songwriter is still searching for sounds he hasn't heard before.
Paul Simon releases his 13th solo album, Stranger To Stranger, today. In making the album, he did some things old-school â€” like luring his longtime engineer, Roy Halee, back behind the desk. But, as he always does, he worked hard to find new sounds. A wealth of percussive sound drives Simon's new material, which incorporates Harry Partch's avant-garde instrumentation, tracks from the Italian electronic artist Clap Clap and field recordings.
