Legendary singer/songwriter Paul Simon is set to release his first album in five years in the first half of next year. To be titled So Beautiful Or So What, the album see’s Simon working once again with long time collaborator Phil Ramone in the producer’s chair.

Having just released a single, Getting Ready For Christmas Day, which you can stream or download from his website, the song sees Simon embrace a slightly spacey sound to what we’ve come to expect from the Graceland star. Still it bears all the hallmarks of a Simon penned song and has me pretty excited about the album to come. Seems like a strange song to be on an album set for release around March, but that’s probably why we’re getting it now.
