In an pretty cool pairing of 2 Rock n Roll Hall of Famers and nice homage to NY Dion wrote a song titled NY is My Home and invited Paul Simon to add his touches to the vocals and video appearance. It will be featured on Dion new release coming out in February. Check out the recently released video below.
Dion and Paul Simon have collaborated on the new single, “New York Is My Home,” available now. The song will serve as the title track for Dion’s upcoming album, to be released in February.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Dion said he originally wrote the tune as a solo recording, but soon realized he’d like to bring Simon into the fold. … “I knew Paul would get this song. And he did. Soon after I sent it to him, he called and said he’d become obsessed with it. He added his own distinct touches to the production. He’s from Queens; I’m from the Bronx. We’re both at home in New York. What a trip, a labor of love for us.”
