"This Kind of Love" by Carly Simon
Carly Simon's highly anticipated first album of all-original songs in eight years, "This Kind of Love", will be released by Hear Music on April 29th, 2008. She joins the elite roster of Hear Music artists that includes Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. The album will be released at Starbucks Company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada, as well as traditional music retail outlets.
"This Kind of Love" ranks among Simon’s most personal albums as well as one of her most stylistically diverse excursions, with songs ranging from gorgeous melodies to driving rhythms. The musical inspiration behind the CD comes from Simon’s fascination with Brazilian music, whose rhythms are subtly infused throughout. Even though she grew up listening to such classic artists as Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfa, it was Simon’s recent discovery of modern-day Brazilian musicians Caetano Veloso and Jorge Ben that made her realize “you don’t have to be singing bossa nova or samba to get the essence [of Brazilian music]. There are songs that fit no one rhythm or generic type or song progression.”
