Up 'til Now is a compilation album by Art Garfunkel. The album is a mixture of three previously released solo tracks (including a track from The Animals' Christmas), seven new songs (including a duet with James Taylor and a track from an earlier recording session left off the Scissors Cut album), and two alternate takes of previously released songs. It also includes the acoustic version of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence", taken from the duo's 1964 debut, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.. It was released in 1993 on Columbia Records.

The track "The Breakup" is a mock-up news flash of Art Garfunkel giving a serious Philosophical reason for the duo's break-up, with Simon continuously interrupting him, in an effort, as Garfunkel put it, "To be like Nichols and May...Hoping people won't take the break-up of Simon and Garfunkel seriously." [1]
