It seems Paul is releasing another single called “My Soul”, and it will be exclusive to a French website for play tomorrow (depending on your time zones, that is!) Nitin Sawhney has a new album coming out called “London Undersound”. Paul did guest vocals on a track. It is a pleasant enough song, nothing earth shattering. You can tell his voice is getting rougher with age.
Wogew reported to our Beatleg friends:
Paul McCartney and Nitin Sawhney recorded a song together, for Sawney’s next album, due out on October 13, 2008. The collaboration song “My Soul” will be aired exclusively on MBC Radio tomorrow and throughout the day.
This is taken from a French website, so I have posted the Yahoo Babelfish translation (never right) followed by the actual text in French.
Here is what we’ve read:

And here is some additional information, but from an older article:
As he prepares to present one of this year’s most intriguing Proms, Nitin Sawhney talks to Peter Culshaw about music, maths and quantum physics
Nitin Sawhney is telling me of two peak experiences – one was meeting Nelson Mandela (who he sampled for his 2001 Prophecy album), the other was a few months ago. “I went round for dinner with Paul McCartney and we ended up jamming, with Paul singing and me on keyboards, and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd on sax. Paul asked me to do a remix of one of his new songs.” Now 42, there’s enough left of the starstruck teenager from Rochester in Kent to forgive his shameless namedropping: “Paul can come up with amazing melodies over any chord sequence you play,” he adds.
Sawhney’s diverse musical upbringing has stood him in good stead. His father was a Latin music fan, his mother a Bharatanatyam dancer; growing up, he studied Indian music, Western classical music and jazz (“The first album I bought was Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue – I grew up playing around with jazz and Bach”), and his elder siblings introduced him to everything from prog rock to punk.
