It’s probably safe to assume that when Paul Simon began to achieve fame and critical acclaim as a part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, he’d never anticipated he might someday release an electronic tribute album. But alas, that day has come.
Simon’s Grammy award-winning 1986 album, Graceland, has been re-imagined by several of dance music’s superstars.
Though just five tastes of the album are available at the moment, as Graceland – The Remixes doesn’t officially land on Legacy/Sony until June, the glimpses into the record shine a new light on the artist’s folk and pop-rock sensibilities as Joris Voorn, Thievery Corporation, Photek, Groove Armada, Paul Oakenfold, and more are called upon to rework the mastery that is the great Paul Simon.
Graceland – The Remixes is out via Sony and Legacy on June 1.
