I just read this in a news queue:

"This is…um, different!

Paul McCartney has just finished recording an album that's devoted to covers of pop standards from the pre-rock years.

He worked with an orchestra to record nearly a dozen songs, including some with Diana Krall and her band.

Explaining the album, Paul says:

"It’s my dad’s style of music. I’ve wanted to do that kind of thing forever, since the Beatle days. But then Rod [Stewart] went mad on it. I thought, 'I have to wait so it doesn’t look like I’m trying to do a Rod.'

They’re just songs I admire, I’m trying to steer away from the obvious ones It’s get-home-from-work music. You put it on and get a glass of wine."

Paul also plans on going in the opposite direction and will begin work on another album that will feature "heavier rock." And he hopes to work with Dave Grohl on the new tracks. Paul says:

"It sounds quite wacky, but it keeps it fresh. I love that – you get a crazy idea and go with it. You never know – I may run into a garage to make this other album.

But it won't be in Dave's garage."

Wow, the man is in his late 60s and he still knows how to make great music and stay current. We applaud Paul and can't wait to hear his new albums!"

 

Can't wait! I love new stuff. I've almost worn my playlists out, I've listened to them so much.

Well, Thanks Kedame!!!! I never would have thought he'd go Sinatra, but cool.

I'm not so interested in the standards/covers album, but the heavier rock one sounds delicious (if it's true - these sorts of stories have littered his post-Beatles press reports).

I think the standards one will actually sell better, as all the fans of Sinatra and the others will buy it, as well as all the McCartney fans. I'm more intrigued by the standards one, just because it is more unique. But the hard rock one will be better.

I'd rather Grohl spent his time recording Them Crooked Vultures II with Homme and Jones, or even with the Foo Fighters, than with McCartney. Still, intriguing prospect. Grohl to play guitar whilst McCartney drums? a-hard-days-night-george-10

So now that Kisses On The Bottom is out any truth Paul is doing a rocker album? I love how he and Grohl seem to get along so well... Maybe they'll work together on a few tunes.

I'd like to know whats happened to the reissues of the remasters. At the current rate of activity we'll be getting London Town in 2020 and Flaming Pie in 2078.

Paul is working on a new pop/rock album, according to a recent interview with Rolling Stone. He mentioned two songs, Hosannah and The Life of a Party Girl, whose melody he wrote while the interviewer was in the kitchen. Apparently, he has also written songs for a new 3D IMAX movie called The Arctic, about...well, the arctic, I guess. (Which is fitting for him given his environmental leanings.)

For his new album, he was "interviewing" potential producers, including Mark Ronson, who you might remember DJ'd Paul and Nancy's wedding, is a friend of Sean Lennon's, and has produced dozens of great albums, including for Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Robbie Williams, Adele, and Jimmy Fallon (who, incidentally, thanks PM in his liner notes...in 2001! I love when my favorites love each other!).

I'm always excited for more Paul. I loved KOTB, but I bet I'll love this one even more! Still excited for RAM remaster, if it ever comes out...

I suspect the Ram reissue won't be much longer. KOTB seems to have done well, and he's pretty popular at the moment so there's a lot of goodwill. If he re-released a great old album now I can see it doing well.

However, my guess is he'll put out the new album first, in the summer around June, when he's performing at the Queen's jubilee (4 June) and the Olympics (as yet unconfirmed AFAIK, but he's been in talks with the organisers). What better time to put out a new record?

On the subject of McCartney, any thoughts on this? (not sure if it's been posted before, sorry if it has)

It reads very oddly to me, though I can't quite put my finger on why. Either he dictated it, someone without much creative flair ghostwrote it (seems most likely), or McCartney really does write like an 11-year-old explaining what he did on his summer holidays.

I cant see Paul ever writing or even speaking the way that blog was written. Reads likes a 12 year old who went to see their favourite artist in concert and then wrote a report for a school report. No idea who wrote it but would bet my copies of Driving Rain and Press To Play that it wasnt Paul.

I suspect it was Stuart Bell of Dawbell PR, who seems to write most of the updates on paulmccartney.com.

Likely. Sounds like a collection of thoughts from Paul strung together to creative a narrative of the week's events. Still, a nice little read.

Great site here Joe.

I don't know...I could see Paul dashing this off really quickly. Though, like you said, it could just be Stuart Bell writing the stuff he says down. For an article I assume really was written by Paul, see here:

http://www.bigissue.com/featur.....on-success.

Also, I think it was in Q magazine where he did, "What I do in a typical day..." article that was hilarious and irreverent, with lines like "Filling out stupid stuff like this..."
