Legendary songwriter Paul Simon is set to release a new live album, Live in New York City, on Sept. 18. The 20-song show sees Simon at the unusually intimate Webster Hall and features songs that span his entire career, which include rare live performances of “Kodachrome,” “Mother and Child Reunion” and “Gone at Last.” The performance was directed by Martyn Atkins and mixed by Phil Ramone and Andy Smith.

Today, we’re excited to premiere one of the songs from the performance, the classic encore-opener “The Sound of Silence.” You can take a listen to the performance in the streaming player below where you can also see the album’s tracklist.
