THIS WEEK’S CD RELEASES
In The Blue Light Out Fri
Evidently not heading for retirement after his final tour concludes this month, Paul Simon has reworked ten tracks from his solo catalogue – including four from 2000’s You’re The One. His voice holds up amazingly well at 76, and the songs have been tweaked and subtly orchestrated to create something warm, wise and new.
Bloom Out now
The second album by South African-born, Australia-raised teenpop idol and vlogger Troye Sivan is stylish, confiding dance-pop of a gentle kind. The Robyn-ish title track, Ariana Grande duet Dance To This and synth-pop strum-along The Good Side stand out in pleasing but sometimes slightly anonymous company.
