Bookends is the fourth studio album by American music duo Simon & Garfunkel. Produced by Paul Simon, Roy Halee and Art Garfunkel, the album was originally released in April 1968. The duo had risen to fame two years prior with hit albums such as Sounds of Silence and Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, radio singles, and touring colleges. In 1967, Simon was approached by director Mike Nichols to write songs for his next film, The Graduate. Released several weeks prior to Bookends, the soundtrack album propelled the band further into stardom.

The album produced the number one hit single, "Mrs. Robinson". The album peaked at number one in both the duo's native country and the United Kingdom. Bookends was considered a breakthrough for the group, placing them on the same level as artists such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones at the forefront of the cultural movement in the 60s. The album has continued to receive critical acclaim in recent years as one of the duo's finest efforts.
