Paul Simon has never been an artist who stays in one place. With his thirteenth studio album, Stranger to Stranger, he delivers a progressive, experimental, melodic and story-rich gem. The album is a rewarding listen, both casually and intensely. The songs have layers of rhythms and electronics with recurring characters—all surrounded by some of Simon's finest vocals.
In our interview, Simon shares some context around the making of the album, his songwriting process, and where his never-ending artistic inspiration comes from.
