Graceland was the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. Produced by Simon and Roy Halee, the album released on August 25, 1986 by Warner Bros. Records. In the early 1980s, Simon’s career hit a low point. Following a very successful but contentious reunion with former partner Art Garfunkel, Simon’s marriage fell apart and his fifth record, Hearts and Bones (1983), was a significant commercial disappointment. In 1984, after a period of depression, Simon became fascinated with a bootleg cassette of South African township music. He planned a trip to Johannesburg in the new year with Halee, where he spent two weeks recording with South African musicians.

Despite the controversy, Graceland was a major commercial hit, becoming Simon’s most successful studio album. His highest-charting effort in over a decade, Simon’s return to the forefront of popular music was considered a remarkable comeback in a fickle music industry. It attracted rave reviews from music critics, won 1987 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and sold over 14 million copies worldwide. Graceland has been called one of the best albums of the 1980s with frequency, and is present on list of “greatest” albums by multiple publications. It was added to the National Recording Registry in 2007 for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important.”
