This Kind of Love is an album by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released in April 2008 by Hear Music. It is Simon's 31st album, her 24th studio album, and her first album of original material since The Bedroom Tapes in 2000.


This Kind of Love was released via the Starbucks-owned label Hear Music, and was to be sold in Starbucks outlets as well as by general music retailers. To Simon's disappointment, Starbucks announced that it had ceased day-to-day operations of Hear Music five days before the release date of This Kind of Love.[1] The album was meant to be Simon's final album, but due to poor sales she was unable to retire. Starbucks reneged on its agreement to stock the album in stores and reduced her advance after Simon had spent $100,000 on recording sessions in Martha's Vineyard. In 2009, Simon sued Starbucks for "concealment of material facts", "tortious interference" with Simon's contract, and "unlawful, unfair and fraudulent business practices".[2]


Simon cited Brazilian music as an influence for the thirteen-song album.[3] She worked on the album for two years.[1]
