Harper Simon Readies New 'Division Street' for March 25 Release

L.A. songwriter and producer Harper Simon will release his second solo album Division Street on March 26 via Play It Again Sam. The new project, the first since Simon's self-titled 2009 debut, was produced by Tom Rothrock (Elliott Smith, Beck) and features members of the Strokes, Bright Eyes, Elvis Costello’s Attractions and Wilco. “I felt challenged and inspired by the idea of making a modern psychedelic folk-rock album," says Simon, "a Tom Rothrock production like (Smith’s) XO, but then the Velvet Underground and the Stones kept entering in. Elliott Smith was very influenced by the Beatles, but my guitar playing is more influenced by Keith Richards. And I kept wanting to emphasize more lo-fi elements.” Simon is the son of songwriter Paul Simon. Stream and download Division Street's "Bonnie Brae" below:
