About the artist
Following Simon’s collaboration with Brian Eno for his 2006 album Surprise, he began to think about how to create intriguing soundscapes beyond the use of keyboards and synthesizers. So on his last album, 2011’s acclaimed So Beautiful Or So What, Simon experimented further with echo, using bells and the aftertones of bells, as well as placing instruments in the distance, to create new sounds and a more expansive musical environment.
Stranger to Stranger is a record that’s more rewarding with each listen, continually offering new things to discover. Perhaps this is a characteristic of Paul Simon’s music, and why so many of his songs have proven to be timeless.
