Home Music Paul McCartney New Classical Album, But Not on Decca Records

Wow–sooo exciting. The minute I read on the Hollywood Reporter website that Paul McCartney’s new classical album was coming out on Decca Records, I called over there to congratulate them. After all, THR says the Beatles were turned down by Decca some 50 years ago. Alas, tisn’t true. Sorry THR! From Decca: “Paul McCartney is signed to Concord Records. We believe he asked to have the album released internationally on the Decca label.” Yes, indeed. Paul is sure enough signed to Concord. And Concord licensed the classical recording, “Ocean’s Kingdom,” to Decca in the United Kingdom. Whoops! Not exactly the stunning history making m0ment as advertised in THR. So much for “breaking news.” McCartney will debut the “Ocean’s Kingdom” music on September 22nd in New York at the New York City Ballet. It wouldn’t surprise me if some of this music makes it  into the animated film McCartney is writing for the adaptation of his children’s book into a film for Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye under their Unique Films banner. I told you about that film exclusively back in mid July.
