I didn’t forsee a new McCartney album happening for a long while. I surely thought that a tour would commence, then Paul and the boys would hit the studio to hammer out a new album. I guess I got that one totally wrong. We could get a new McCartney album sooner than we thought.
No, Paul is not resting on his laurels here. He seems to be hard at work on new material. Let’s hope he keeps with the streak of albums that he’s had with Flaming Pie, Driving Rain, Chaos and Creation, and Memory Almost Full.
Here’s what we’ve read.
Sir Paul McCartney may have got a Lifetime Achievement Brit Award but he’s not finished yet – he’s working on a new album.
Fresh from his headlining appearance at the Brits on Wednesday and last year’s well received ‘Memory almost Full’, the former Beatle has just started recording material for a new release this year.
His spokesperson says, “Paul started recording last week, but he has been writing for a while. It should be ready by the summer.”
And McCartney has chosen a surprising collaborator for the project – he’s working with producer Youth at his studio in Icklesham, East Sussex, who is more noted for his work on more upbeat fare.
