Any thoughts on the new McCartney single? Good/bad/indifferent?

I think it's OK, nothing too special. In terms of composing-to-order it's no Live And Let Die , though it's by no means a bad song.

I wrote a piece about it a few days ago. A 12" single containing all the mixes has also just been listed on Amazon (US only at the moment).

We have discussed this song a lot in another thread:

Thanks for that. I must have missed that thread. I'll leave this here anyway in case people want to x-post.

I'd say it's pretty good.  I'm not rushing to download it or anything, but I didn't mind listening to it..

 

He did a CBC interview yesterday talking about it…  may have been posted somewhere else on here but oh well, if so here it is again:

Cute interview.  heart

(Good to hear from you LHL).

Would make a good James Bond theme - especially the parts that go "we could build bridges"

Indifferent. Some of the lyrics are Paul in default mode and the video is pretty lame.

Typing of videos since its not in this thread its below.

Someone edited the video to the Thrash Mix, which I really like.
