Listen to Carly Simon’s ‘Spring is Here’ from And Just Like That, Episode 7

Carly Simon’s ‘Spring is Here’ is from the American singer songwriter’s 10th studio album Torch, which came out in August, 1981 on the Warner Bros. record label.

The album was made up of all cover songs, except for one original.

That includes Simon‘s version of ‘Spring is Here’, which was written by iconic songwriting time Rodgers and Hart back in 1938 for the musical I Married an Angel.

Between its first release and Simon’s, ‘Spring is Here‘ had also been recorded by Tony Bennett, Miles Davis, Vic Damone, Julie London, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and several other luminaries.

Simon’s version of ‘Spring is Here‘ was recorded during the time she was going through a divorce from then-husband James Taylor, so the melancholy is to be expected.

Torch, the album it appeared on, was critically acclaimed.
