first_imgFor anyone who was hoping Simon & Garfunkel reunion, don’t hold your breath. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Paul Simon was asked about any possibility of working with Art Garfunkel in the future.Simon sternly responded, “No, out of the question… We don’t even talk.”The singer/songwriter also talks about how he plans to craft setlists for his upcoming tour, saying that fans should expect a selection of songs from Simon’s new album, Stranger to Stranger, which is due out on June 3rd. The new release sounds rather exciting, actually, as Simon explores one-of-a-kind instruments and unique tonal structures.Of course, all of the classics will also be in store. “They wanna hear ‘You Can Call Me Al,’… So I play it. It’s not like I would pick out ‘You Can Call Me Al’ and play it because I really want to, but people like it so much that I’m like, ‘Of course I’ll do it.’ I’ll play ‘Me and Julio [Down by the Schoolyard]’ too, though I actually like ‘Me and Julio.’”Simon’s tour kicks off at Jazz Fest next week, and runs until June. Tour dates can be seen here.[Via Rolling Stone]last_img
