Just days before Carly Simon’s long-awaited memoir, Boys in the Trees, arrives, Rhino will release the book’s musical companion, SONGS FROM THE TREES (A MUSICAL MEMOIR COLLECTION).
In the two disc CD collection’s liner notes, the acclaimed singer/songwriter explains the music’s connection to her book: “This is a special album that serves as an additional way to look at my stories. Most of these songs are precursors to what eventually became the book...If you feel like playing this puzzle, there are clues of how to cross-reference the songs with the chapters, pages and words.”
With 31 tracks spread across two disc, the compilation spans a great deal of the award-winning artist’s stellar career, from her musical debut as half of The Simon Sisters performing folk songs with her sister Lucy in Greenwich Village, to her meteoric solo career, which yielded 13 top 40 hits, including the #1 song “You’re So Vain.”
Adele has confirmed the release of her third studio album, 25, likely the most anticipated music release of 2015. 25, the follow-up to her 2011 blockbuster 21, will be out on November 20, 2015 via Universal Music, she revealed this week.
It was a busy week for the secretive superstar, who previewed a new song during the UK X Factor on Sunday, then shared a note to fans about the new album this past Wednesday morning. "25 is about getting to know who I've become without realising,” she wrote. “And I'm sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened."
