Dion And Paul Simon’s Paean To NYC

DION and PAUL SIMON - New York Is My HomeDion DiMucci‘s career started back in 1958 and the singer allowed himself to slow down only in the ’80s when it was hard to retain one’s genuine core; then, the veteran gained momentum once again, looping lately back to the blues. Still, Dion’s forthcoming album, planned for 2016, should mark a departure from his recent course, as the record – titled “New York Is My Home” – will have an urban feel to it. Its first single, a title track scheduled to premiere on November 13th, is a duet with another quintessential Big Apple dweller Paul Simon, who also co-wrote the piece.

They call it a love letter to their beloved city, and it’s not a commercially-minded collaboration, as the two artists are long-time friends, with their joint efforts including “Written On A Subway Wall” from Dion’s “Yo Frankie” that focused on Bronx and “The Wanderer” which Dion delivered, backed by Paul and other vocalists, at the 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Concerts. So it’s going to be a heartfelt one.
