Paul McCartney’s “McCartney III” Delayed by One Week to December 18th Over “Production Issues,” Single Issued Then Recalled


News about Paul McCartney’s “McCartney III”: It was supposed to be released on December 11th. Now it’s been delayed a week til December 18th because of “production issues.”

Strangely enough, earlier today I received an email link to three tracks from the album including “Find My Way.” I listened to them, read comments posted about the tracks from a couple of fans, and then the whole thing disappeared. Was it a mistake? Did the McCartney team not like the comments? I don’t know.

Anyway, all very strange. I really enjoyed “Find My Way” and the other two tracks. One of them was called “Winter.” “Find My Way” particularly stood out with very layered McCartney vocals. I was really impressed with his falsetto. But it was the melody and construction that I should emphasize. That more of these songs still exist in him is remarkable.

So we wait until they sort everything out.

PS Really, sometimes I feel like I’m losing my mind. Maybe I just imagined the whole thing.
