Ashford & Simpson recorded the album Been Found with poet Maya Angelou in 1996. Around that time, they were also featured disc jockeys on New York radio station WRKS. On August 16, 2006, Playbill Online reported that they were writing the score for a musical based on E. Lynn Harris's novel Invisible Life. In January 2007, they, along with Tina Turner, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Sidney Poitier, director Spike Lee, and comedian Chris Rock accompanied Oprah Winfrey when she opened her Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. Simpson released a new solo album in June 2012, called Dinosaurs Are Coming Back Again, which also features the last recorded performance of Nina Simone, a second duet with Roberta Flack and an instrumental version of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough".

This album from 1983 is Ashford and Simpson perfection. A perfect mix of uptempo tracks with some glorious ballads. The title track HIGH RISE is a sublime dance trace with an irresistible beat and of course the glorious harmonies of our married duo. They seem to be having so much fun. SIDE EFFECT and IT'S MUCH DEEPER are also uptempo standouts. For me though the true magic on this album comes from the superb ballads. EXPERIENCE (LOVE HAD NO FACE) and I'M NOT THAT TOUGH are songs with deep meaning and are sung with heartfelt conviction

Simpson still sang effectively, and Ashford harmonized and contrasted her nicely, but they'd stated and restated both their own situations and any variations on it four albums before. As a result, the feeling that you've heard it all once too often permeates this album. Not that their fans wouldn't want to listen once more, nor that what they had to say wasn't at times compelling; it's just that it no longer was special. 1 High-Rise Ashford & Simpson 5:30. 2 Side Effect Ashford & Simpson 4:6. 3 Experience.

I knew her well We suffered through the good and the bad times Believed above else She was mine But she said that it couldn't last forever Runnin' 'cross the bridge she said She wanna live in a high-rise Way up on the east side A city, h. .She wanna live in a high-rise Way up on the east side A city Where she can forget about me, ooh. I remember the moment She took me through it in the pourin' rain Said there's somethin' all the love in the world Ain't gon' change And as we ran for shelter under the oak tree She suddenly turned to me and said. No, boy, oh, no We've pretended long enough Now the time is almost here I won't leave no tears {No}, no tears. She wanna live in a high-rise Way up on the east side A city (Ho, yeah) In high society {Oh, please don't go} (Ooh).
