Last year, Paul Simon decided to begin writing a new batch of songs. He had great success with 2006's Surprise album and his creative juices were flowing.

 

So, he set about writing songs that emerged on his new album, his 12th studio album, So Beautiful Or So What.

This summer, he performed a special show at Webster Hall in Manhattan and it  was filmed for Paul Simon: Live At Webster Hall New York, a concert movie that will be broadcast on PBS starting on December 3rd.

I thought you might like to see one song, "Rewrite," which is a cut from the new album. It's sort of like being 'up-close and personal' with Paul Simon in a small club. Doesn't get any better than that.
