Carly Simon has joined Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Sia and her ex-husband James Taylor by signing with Starbucks' Hear Music label. The coffee giant will release Simon's new album This Kind of Love, the singer's first album of new material since 2000's The Bedroom Tapes, on April 29th. The thirteen-song album features a "Brazilian-heavy sound" and was produced by famed songwriter Jimmy Webb and Frank Filipetti. In other Simon news, the singer likely received a sales boost earlier this week when her "You're So Vain" was performed by Brooke White on American Idol.
