Surprise, the first solo album from Paul Simon in seven years, will be released on May 9th. Rolling Stone reports that Brian Eno helped Simon out with the production of this one.

And regarding the question on everybody’s mind… the answer is yes. It will include the song he wrote for The Wild Thornberries movie: “Father and Daughter.”

Billboard reports:

Guest appearances include guitarist Bill Frisell, drummer Steve Gadd and pianist Herbie Hancock, whose 2005 album, “Possibilities,” featured a new recording with Simon of the latter’s “I Do It for Your Love.”

According to a spokesperson, tours are in the works for both summer and fall. Simon will also perform on the May 13 episode of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
