Last year Paul released Kisses On The Bottom, an album of old jazz songs but It's been six years since Paul's last solo album which he wrote the material for. NEW will be released this coming October (14th for UK Fans and 15th for US Fans). It will be an album with 12 new tracks in which Paul wrote with help from new collaborators who will be featured on the album.
Listen to Paul's new song "New":
September 4 Paul spoke with NME about the new debut of NEW Surprisingly David Bowie has had some impact on the process of this album, giving as Paul said "A positive mood." David Bowie released his album The Next Day last March which had took over charts in the United Kingdom, although Paul did not get his inspiration for the album from David Bowie, in fact Paul was already a year into the idea and process of the album when Bowie's album was released. The article reads;
"People are always wondering what he's up to," McCartney said of Bowie, speaking in this week's NME, available digitally and on newsstands from today (September 4). "You hear David's in New York not doing much, then there are reports in the papers about health scares and that he might not be doing anything again. And then he comes out with that... and it really is a good album, with such freshness, and yes, it is inspiring."( Read more on the NME interview here )It was released that not only does NEW feature a range of collaborators but is being produced by the following four proudcers; Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence and the Machine), Ethan Johns and Beatles producer, George Martin's son, Giles.
"There was a reason to work with each of these guys. Their age, well, it's good working with younger people, but really I don't think about it. Age goes away once you're in the studio."- Paul McCartney (NME September 4, 2013 interview)NEW was recorded in a total of five months over the length of a year and six months and was mixed by Mark 'Spike' Stent. The recording for this album took place in various places like studios owned by producers, Abbey Road, and Paul's Hog Hill Mill Studio.
Paul has so far released four more track names not including "New"; "Alligator", "Save Us" (which he released in the NME interview), "Everybody Out There", and "Queenie Eye" (which he told The Sun)
