Paul Simon on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

I missed this when it came out two weeks ago, but I’m glad to have found it this morning: Paul Simon unaccompanied, singing “Your Forgiveness” from his new album, Seven Psalms. (The 33-minute album is meant to be listened to all in one go.)

The docuseries Colbert mentions at the end — In Restless Dreams: The Music of Paul Simon, by Alex Gibney — came out on March 17 (trailer here). I haven’t seen it yet but very much want to.

The entire interview is on YouTube, but I’d recommend watching the part where he talks about writing “Darling Lorraine,” an underrated gem from his later catalogue. It starts around the 6 minute mark.

One of my favorites!
