VIDEO: Official video for new Fireman track – “Sing the Changes.”

Paul has released a new video from his upcoming album, Electric Arguments.  This is the first official video from any track off this album.  Sing the Changes could be one of McCartney’s best songs in nearly 20 years.

Check out – Sing the Changes

Gigwise has a transcript of Paul’s London press conference to promote the Fireman album as well.

We couldn’t be more excited about this album. It is Paul at his most experimental and adventurous.  It’s amazing how far out this album is at times, yet it remains totally accessible as well.

  1. “Sing the Changes” is both catchy and a grower. Like the whole album. At first and second listen I was a bit sceptic and so-so to “Electric Arguments”. But then it starts to come toghether for every listen. It’s so varied musically and the unusal instrumentation and production for McCartney songs takes some time to get used to. Some of the songs dosen’t even have a melody. It’s all atmosphere, like “Is This Love?” and “Lovers in a Dream”. But you sink into them with each listen. It’s a good thing McCartney and Youth picked up the collaboration again. I have even started to listen to the 90’s releases again. You can sense an evolution in the collaboration that sort of build up to this great album. It think The Fireman as a project comes through as a lot more interesting after this new one, and not only an obscure offbeat experimentation interesting only to diehard McCartey fans. There’s consdiderable growth in the partnership and I like to think that if they hadn’t made the first two, they wouldn’t have come up with inventive piece of work.

  2. I’m blown away by this album. Paul’s genius shines through. I mean this was recorded in one day! Experimental, maybe? My gut feeling this is Paul truely being himself, letting it rip and not worrying about his music trying to fit a demographic. I really believe this can be the one breakthrough album of his late career resurgance and the single has the potential to chart for once. I’m excited about this release more so than anything from Paul in many, many years.

  3. To me, McCartney has released four brilliant albums in three years now.
    First the quiet “Chaos and Creation in the Backyard”, with some darker and sort of miserable undertones, unusual for a McCartney album.
    Then you have the more mainstream commercial pop/rock album in “Memory Almost Full”, with a modern radiofriendly production and sound and catchy songs with inventive arrangements.
    And the wonderful classical album “Ecce Cor Meum (Behold My Heart). What a brilliant composition!
    And now the experimental carnival of sound: The Fireman “Electric Arguments”.
    It feels good to be a Paul McCartney fan these days. : )

  4. I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it!

    I’m going shopping tomorrow, and i’m definetly buying this album!

  5. What a great track!
    It’s amazing to me how much talent Paul has.
    I guess when God created Paul he was in an extremely poetic and musical mood, it’s the only explanation I can think of to explain the endless musical talent of Macca.

    I love Paul.

    Thanks for putting this here and for the blog in general,

  6. One amazing thing about McCartney is how he survives musical fashions, decades, hypes and critics darlings coming and going. There’s few other musicians who’s been slaughtered so many times by the critics and the “know-all’s”. I have read old reviews of “Ram” where he is called a washed-up has-been: Too old to rock ‘n’ roll, give up and go home. And that was in 1971. Now it’s 2008 and McCartney has just released a record so inventive and alive, that most yougsters can only listen and learn.

  7. I will repeat what I’ve already said on this (great) site: This is going to be one of Paul McCartney’s greatest post-Beatles works. I’ve heard three songs off the album now and each one is exceptionally good in every possible way. Thank God Paul is still engaged with music enough to put in the effort to make this kind of work and thank God he’s got someone to collaborate with who can push him to new heights of creativity.

  8. love the song and the record, for the most part… somehow reminds me of london town… terrible video, though…

  9. It’s not the best McCartney album of songs, I would say. It’s very much a production job, very modern sounding. Only time will tell if it will stand the test of time, or if the production will sound dated, a decade or two from now. Remember that albums like “McCartney II” and “Press To Play” were critically praised upon release. Highly regarded for McCartney’s experimental approach, trying something new. Not unlike the excitement for “Electric Arguments”. It’s too early to put the album in a top spot of best McCartney albums. The freshness of listening to something new hasn’t worn off yet. : )
