Watch this new Paul McCartney video for his new song, “New.” From the album “New.” Paul is 71 and a half years old. He can sing like it was 1973. Take that, top 40 pretenders who use AutoTune and backup singers to mask what they haven’t got. Paul’s a clever one, isn’t he? Just singing like that!
McCartney’s “New” album hits stores October 15th. Here’s the tracklist. Three of the tracks were produced by George Martin’s son Giles, who produced the “LOVE” album with his dad for Cirque du Soleil. Two are from Mark Ronson. And two are from Paul Epworth, who works with Adele. Two tracks are with Ethan Johns, son famed Glyn Johns, who produced so many Rolling Stones hits. Interesting choices, Paul. So we have Sting, Elton John, and Macca this month, a great record from Rod Stewart earlier this year. And of course, David Bowie. Very cool.
