Paul Simon's just announced his first new project for the next 80 years of his life with the upcoming audio biography, Miracle And Wonder: Conversations With Paul Simon, from Malcolm Gladwell and New York Times journalist Bruce Headlam. The life-spanning bio will be released on November 16th via Gladwell’s Pushkin Industries. The title comes from the lyrics featured on his classic 1986 Graceland opener, “The Boy In The Bubble.”
Simon, who turned 80 on October 13th said in a statement, “Over my career, I must have given hundreds of interviews on various projects, but speaking and collaborating with Malcolm on this was especially enjoyable.”
Over the course of the five-hour audio interview, Simon reveals he's been composing a new project — tentatively titled Seven Psalms — and performs bits from the unfinished song-cycle during the course of the expansive chat.
