Next week, director Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) will debut his film Under African Skies, a documentary of Paul Simon's album Graceland, at the Sundance Film Festival. The film will see a limited theatrical release and will also be shown on A&E. Also, look for a 25th Anniversary box set of Graceland this spring featuring the remastered album, bonus tracks, and a director's cut of Under African Skies.

“In many ways, Graceland was the most extraordinary experience in my entire career…,” says Simon. “The insight into rhythm was the great gift that I received from making the trip to South Africa, and collaborating with African musicians.”  Paul has been using a vintage Epiphone 12-string Riviera on tour. Very cool. Look for our exclusive Epiphone interview soon.
