Paul Simon has announced his Spring Tour. So Beautiful or So What is is first new album in five years.

Renowned artist Paul Simon has announced a very special North American tour beginning Friday, April 15th in Seattle, Washington.

Also included will be songs from So Beautiful or So What, his brand new album set for release by Hear Music/Concord Music Group on Tuesday, April 12, 2011. 

Before hitting the road, Simon will appear two consecutive nights, April 6th and 7th on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Produced by Phil Ramone and Paul Simon, with liner notes written by Elvis Costello, So Beautiful or So What is one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year.  Rolling Stone magazine recently declared it, “His best since Graceland,” and National Public Radio affirmed, “…his new music balances great poetry and pop. Paul Simon is a national treasure.”  In their current issue, Filter Magazine calls the new album, “…a new masterpiece from the Picasso of music.”

Joining Paul for this tour is Cameroonian guitarist Vincent Nguini, drummer Jim Oblon, pianist Mick Rossi, saxophonist/keyboardist Andrew Snitzer, bassist Bakithi Kumalo, guitarist Mark Stewart, master percussionist Jamey Haddad and multi-instrumentalist Tony Cedras.
