DUBLIN, IRELAND - MAY 17: Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones performs live on stage on the opening night of the european leg of their No Filter tour at Croke Park on May 17, 2018 in Dublin, Ireland; BEVERLY HILLS, CA - FEBRUARY 14: Recording artist Carly Simon performs onstage during the 2016 Pre-GRAMMY Gala and Salute to Industry Icons honoring Irving Azoff at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 14, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California.

For the first time in over 45 years after its initial recording, a duet between Mick Jagger and Carly Simon was found.

Per the Associated Press, the Jagger/Simon collaboration tentatively called “Fragile” was found by Rolling Stones collector Matt Lee on a tape he owns but did not disclose where he got the tape.  He forwarded a digital copy of the recording to Rolling Stone, who promised to forward it to Simon.

In a November 2016 interview with Rolling Stone, Simon talked about the duet and said, “[Producer] Richard Perry has been looking for that tape for years. Someone from Warner Brothers must have it.”  She then sang the following line from the song: “Funny, funny, funny, funny, funny, How love can make you cry.”

Now whether or not us fans will ever hear it remains uncertain, but in an age where reissues and “vault releases” are so popular, it’s difficult to believe it won’t be released.
