    Harper Simon is the latest musician to sit down with ARTISTdirect.com for our exclusive See the Music series.

    The singer, who has awesomely wild hair like Bob Dylan, talks about "Bonnie Brae" and about writing on the acoustic guitar, finger picking and all.

    Diving deep into the song, he discusses the notion of writing songs about that elusive person who comes into your life and then disappears. We've all had one of those! He also reveals that he worked with a member of The Strokes.

    The song is a staple from his forthcoming album, Division Street, available March 26. According to editor in chief Rick Florino, it's "an expansive emotional pastiche that'll resound with listeners everywhere. Division Street is a place you'll want to visit again and again with its elegant songwriting, unforgettable melodies, and Simon's poignant, powerful delivery. It's already a stand out for 2013."

    In addition, Mr. Simon will be playing a residency in Los Angeles at The Satellite in Silverlake each Monday in March. The dates are March 4, 11, 18, and 25 (right before the album drops).
