Share This:

carly-simon-songs-from-the-trees-album-artJust a few days before Carly Simon’s long-awaited memoir Boys in the Trees hits shelves, fans can get their hands on the book’s double-disc musical companion, Songs from the Trees (A Musical Memoir Collection). This special compilation album takes listeners on a 31-track journey through the award-winning musician’s career, from her start singing folk songs in Greenwich Village to her string of hit records in the 1970s and early ’80s. The companion record will be available November 20th.

“This is a special album that serves as an additional way to look at my stories,” the singer explained in a statement. “As the narrative only goes up to 1983, there are many songs to follow. If you feel like playing this puzzle, there are clues of how to cross-reference the songs with the chapters, pages and words.”

In addition to songs that fans already know and love, Songs from the Trees will also include two unreleased tracks: “Showdown,” which was recorded during the sessions for Simon’s 1978 album Boys in the Trees, and “I Can’t Thank You Enough,” a new tune she wrote with her son.

But we know what you’re really wondering – will we ever find out the carefully guarded secret subject of the song “You’re So Vain”? Time will tell. Simon’s memoir Boys in the Trees arrives November 24th via Flatiron Books.
