Best of Carly Simon - classic tracks re-recorded + 2 new songs

Carly Simon, one of the greatest songwriters, composers and performers of the past four decades, will return on 1 March 2010 with the release of new album 'Never Been Gone' released on Iris Records through Warner Music / Rhino UK.

Carly Simon - Never Been Gone

'Never Been Gone' will bring the work of Carly Simon to a whole new generation, as she revisits songs originally written throughout her long and hugely successful career.

The album was recorded at her home in the U.S. on the island of Martha's Vineyard and features largely acoustic arrangements of Carly's greatest compositions such as "You're So Vain", "Let The River Run" and "Right Thing To Do".

A portion of the proceeds from 'Never Been Gone' will go to the Carly Simon Music Therapy Initiative, the collaboration between Carly Simon and Berklee College of Music that brings the healing power of music into the community at large.
