Carly Simon shot to fame
in the early seventies with a string of critically acclaimed singles &
albums on the Elektra label. As well as the iconic hits ‘You’re So Vain’ & ‘Nobody
Does It Better’ (from “The Spy Who Loved Me”) she enjoyed further US successes
with the hits ‘That’s The Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be’, ‘Anticipation’,
‘Mockingbird’ (with James Taylor) and ‘You Belong To Me.’
After a less successful
stint on Warner Bros. and a divorce from fellow singer/songwriter James Taylor,
Carly signed with Epic Records in 1985 who teamed her up with some of the
hottest Pop & Dance producers of the day including Arthur Baker, Don Was,
Phil Ramone and Paul Samwell-Smith. The resulting album was SPOILED GIRL.
Though the album did not
reach sales expectations in 1985 it has since become something of a cult
classic and is seen by many as one of the most cohesive, well written and
produced multi-producer albums of the mid-eighties.
TIRED OF BEING BLONDE was
released as the first single and returned Carly to the Billboard Hot 100 and
Adult Contemporary charts.
MY NEW BOYFRIEND was the
albums second single and featured Carly in a New Wave/Dance setting. THE WIVES ARE IN CONNECTICUT caught the
attention of Mike Nichols and Norah Efron who invited Simon to write the theme
song for their upcoming movie Heartburn resulting in her comeback hit Coming
Around Again.RELEASE DATE: 25/06/2012
