Paul Simon has named his new album, In the Blue Light (Legacy), after a line from “How the Heart Approaches What It Yearns,” a song from the soundtrack to the dreadful One-Trick Pony, which he wrote and starred in 38 years ago. That the song itself (its title’s dodgy grammar notwithstanding) is not dreadful makes Simon’s decision to re-record it for inclusion on In the Blue Light a welcome one.
