Paul Simon Reveals Song From New Album 'Stranger to Stranger'

(Radio.com) Paul Simon's recently finished his thirteenth album, Stranger to Stranger, which is currently scheduled for release June 3. The record will be his first since 2011's So Beautiful or So What.

The folk rock legend recorded the album with longtime collaborator Roy Halee and imbued the songs with a range of influence, including Flamenco rhythms, Italian dance melodies and the offbeat styles of experimental composer Harry Partch,

So don't expect "The Sound of Silence"; Simon has other sounds in store for listeners. "Sound is the theme of this album as much as it's about the subjects of the individual songs," he said. "If people get that, I'll be pleased. The right song at the right time can live for generations. A beautiful sound, well that's forever."

Simon has posted the first single, "Wristband," which you can check out here.
