Paul Simon has released a new album in collaboration with... yes, Brian Eno. I suppose I shouldn't really be surprised at this point, but I am anyway. Pleasantly.

I heard one of his new songs on the radio tonight. I kinda liked it! It had some of the upbeat qualities of something like You Can Call Me Al, but with a deeper drum aspect... upbeat yet earthy is what I was feeling when it played.

I'm interested to hear more. Let me know what you think of it!

So far, I'm liking it; nothing seems essential yet, and the backing electronics aren't as distinctively Eno-ish as I'd expected, but the songs are pretty and the two artists' musical styles mesh really nicely. "Upbeat", yeah, and "earthy", and I think "clear" would describe it well, too... or maybe "uncluttered" is better. But you know where I'm going.

Incidentally, I probably shouldn't find it amusing that Eno's contributions on the songwriting front are published by "Brian Eno Publishing Designee", but I do anyway.  :-)
