Paul Simon Announces New Album Stranger To Stranger, First Queens Show In 46 Years

American musical treasure Paul Simon is about to head out on a big spring/summer tour, and it’ll include his first show at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium — a venue mere blocks away from where Simon grew up in Queens — since Simon And Garfunkel played a show there in 1970. And as Rolling Stone reports, it looks like the tour will be all tied up with a new album release. Simon hasn’t made any official announcement of a new LP yet; his last one was So Beautiful Or So What, which came out back in 2011. But according to an ad for the Forest Hills show, Simon is touring behind a new LP called Stranger To Stranger, so look out for that. Check out his tour dates below.
