Woo hoo - I now have a shiny new copy of "New" in my hands - cue Charles Dickens story about the overloaded credit card, which is now overdue as I spent the money I was going to use for the monthly bill on the Lewisohn book - at least I have a few weeks to busk or something before "BBC Vol 2" comes out.

Luckily the deluxe edition has the colour cover I like better - though A$5 for a couple more songs and (I think) slightly lengthier booklet is a little much.

I was going to comment on CD packaging but don't want "kind Mr Nasty sir" hitting me over the head with an off-topic submarine so will create a separate post in a better spot for that :)

[EDIT] Well, I created the other thread, but will comment here as well since this is "New" related.  I'm kind of disappointed that in the 'deluxe' set that when you open the folding cover you are greeted with another exact copy of the cover image, why not include the alternate colour version off the 'standard' edition?  But then I suppose it's better than the blank white (there's that colour again) inside the 'standard' edition of "Kisses On The Bottom".

Happy dance. New music to tickle the eardrums. I'm off on Tuesday when its my turn to get the cd. I'll have to keep myself hyper occupied until it arrives on my doorstep that day or I'll go nuts waiting for it.

Enjoy your day off listening to it. I'm hoping the station gets a promo copy like we did with Early Takes Volume 1 from George and I played it that week on the show, because otherwise I don't think I'll be able to get New till the end of the month. Sucks being broke, but better than nothing...

You can hear a sample of the Japanese-only CD track by going here and choosing Struggle (track no. 15). You'll have to change your country to Japan. Make sure to change back to your home country afterward - the link will be at the bottom of the iTunes store, but now in Japanese.

I love this sample and I hope to get an mp3 of the full version somehow.

Via Paul's FB: he will be signing copies of the album this Friday at 3pm at the Oxford St. HMV (the same one that was giving away copies of Live At The BBC Vol. 2 7" this morning). Later this week, there'll be a chance to guarantee an entry via his Twitter page.

Edit:

* You'll be able to watch the Bang & Olufsen talk live at 2pm UK time here at YouTube. You can send in questions via Twitter to @Paul McCartney using #askmccartney.

* They haven't announced the winner of the BBC contests yet, so you might still have a chance to submit your entry.

^^ I'm calling around to see if I can get one.

And I'm still willing to trade for one of those beer coasters if anyone got an extra.

And from Paul's site - apparently you need instructions to open the CD.

The deluxe cover has one more extra fold so you have to take that out from the inside, you still have a good chance of ripping the cover (and scratching the CD when you try and get IT out).  Check out my post on CD packaging.

I'm a little behind everyone here... just heard the title song for the first time, and... it's quite pleasant but it sounds like the work product of someone assigned to write a song "in the style of Paul McCartney" - a bit like the old Rutles. Anyone else feel that way?

Even the the line "we can do what we want" seems lifted right out of one of his recent songs (somebody here on the Forum will know which one). Anyway, my CD is on order, so I look forward to the rest! (By the way I REALLY like the NEW logo in all its various colors. Too bad he couldn't do something like that for Memory Almost Full; what a stodgy cover that was!)

Paul was in fine voice for the high school concert, and you could tell a good number of the kids were familiar with his music, especially from the way they squealed during  "Blackbird" and "Hey Jude." They really got into "Back In The USSR."

I have to admire the poise of these kids. If I'd been 14 and had the chance to ask Paul McCartney a question in that context, I would have fainted in front of my classmates. Not only did they have to go up and speak into a mike, but the spotlight remained on the student why Paul addressed him or her directly and answered the question. I think I would have been like, "Wah, don't Look At Me while you're answering my question!" *thud*

I saw one Beatles t-shirt (it was black with white letters) on one boy in the audience. Did you see any others?

I was quite thrilled to see so many of them singing along.
