A 33-minute, seven-movement composition recorded entirely on acoustic instruments, Seven Psalms is unlike anything Paul Simon has previously released.
Highlighting Simon's guitar and voice, the album is a stunning, intricately layered, work with a meditative, almost hymnal soundscape.
Simon’s lyrics provide the gravitational centre for constellations of sound (including choral elements from the highly-regarded British vocal ensemble VOCES8, and a beautiful vocal appearance by Edie Brickell).
A quietly moving musical experience which uncovers a wealth of subtle details with every repeated listen.
The record’s tone is complemented by its artwork, which features a close-up extract of “Two Owls” by the celebrated landscape artist Thomas Moran.
