New McCartney single available to radio stations. Details.


Hold onto your seats.  This is a long post.  We have summarized a lot of information about the new single, new album, and new mini-website.  Grab a cup of coffee, sit tight and read all about it. It’s Paul McCartney-palooza!

 

It has been told on the SteveHoffman messageboards that Friday will be a big day for Paul McCartney and his anticipated LP release for 2007.  The first single from his forthcoming album entitled “Memory Almost Full” will be available to radio stations via digital download at 12:01am ET this Friday, April 20. The track is titled,”Ever Present Past.”  Keep your ears open on your local radio stations for a listen of the track that has been described by some in message board postings as:

“…Musically quirky (McCartney II fans will love this one), hooky and clever with great lyrics, addictive robotic rhythm, nifty distorted guitar riffs and terrific double-tracked vocals. Fully realized top-drawer Macca Pop in every respect….”

Further description:

“…The double-tracked vocals are sung in a low register during the verses, and are largely falsetto during the chorus (vaguely reminiscent of Sparks’ Russell Mael). The lyric is in some ways similar to “Friends To Go” (looking back in hindsight on childhood activities).

The rhythm/feel/tempo is similar to the “live a little, be a gypsy, get around” section of “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey”. The entire track moves along at this pace and tempo, with a bit of slight rhythmic doubling-up on the chorus.

EPP is in the key of C– the verse alternates between Dm7 and C. The “middle 8″ section (in the key of F) features loud, crunchy electric guitar and some great pounding electric harpsichord.

After a concluding double-chorus section, the track ends on crashing C chord….”

Is it possible that the lyrics have leaked as well?  It looks like they may have.  We also snagged these from the SH boards.

Rare Beatles interviews to appear on Wippit

I can hear the bootleggers salivating.  It looks like the announcement of Beatle downloads, albeit in video news reels is a welcomed sight in the digital age.  It appears though, that there are some juicy tidbits of footage that are quite rare.  Hopefully, they will become available over here in the United States as well.  It looks like they have some good things happening. 

Hopefully the BBC, with it’s recently announced free archives, will be a treasure trove as well.  The London based digital download pioneer is adding to the rare Beatles catalogue of interviews and news reportage with a rare and sought after news documentary from 1966 and not aired in complete form since then.

Here’s what we’ve read.
