Graceland is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. Produced by Simon and Roy Halee, the album released on August 25, 1986 by Warner Bros. Records. In the early 1980s, Simon's career hit a low point. Following a very successful but contentious reunion with former partner Art Garfunkel, Simon's marriage fell apart and his fifth record, Hearts and Bones (1983), was a significant commercial disappointment. In 1984, after a period of depression, Simon became fascinated with a bootleg cassette of South African township music. He planned a trip to Johannesburg in the new year with Halee, where he spent two weeks recording with South African musicians.
Wrote the song "The Only Living Boy In New York" about Art Garfunkel getting his role in Catch-22 (1970).
Winner of the British Phonographic Industry Award for International Solo Artist in 1987.
