As many of my long time followers will know (and newer followers will now find out), The Beatles have long been and will long be my favourite band. So naturally, when I hear news of a new Paul McCartney album, I get quite excited.
Although McCartney has done an album with his side project The Fireman, a ballet (Ocean’s Kingdom), and a brilliant covers album (Kisses On The Bottom), it’s been six long years since he released an album of his own original pop songs. And it seems he has titled this new album, and song, “New”.
The song has been on Youtube for a week and has garnered almost a million views, which isn’t too bad for someone in their seventies. The thing that always amazes me with McCartney is that his voice is exactly the same now as it was 50 years ago when the world first heard it. His song writing style hasn’t changed much, but who says that’s a bad thing?
Anyway, here’s the song – let me know your thoughts on it in the comments section! I myself am very excited for the new album, which is due out next month.
