Sir Paul McCartney has released a new song titled, ironically, “New.” The song will be featured on the original musician’s upcoming LP titled New as well.
The LP will be the former Beatles’ solo album in six years and will include 12 new song all produced by mega producer, Mark Ronson. The LP will supposedly have a more McCartney feel to it with lines such as “we can do what we want, we can live as we choose.”
McCartney’s last album that featured purely new tracks was 2007’s Memory Almost Full. In 2009, he released the live album, Good Evening New York City and followed that with a classic ballet score in 2011 titled, Ocean’s Kingdom. Last year, he released Kisses on the Bottom, which did not include new material, but did include several covers of pop and jazz hits.
Last month, McCartney made news when he during a show at Seattle’s Safeco Field, he brought out the remaining members of Nirvana on the stage to perform during his encore. Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic backed McCartney on “Cut Me Some Slack” which will be featured on the upcoming release.
