McCartney III cover artwork

Written by: McCartney
Recorded: 2020
Producer: Paul McCartney

Released: 18 December 2020

Available on:
McCartney III

Personnel

Paul McCartney: vocals, all instruments

There’s nothing on that track – it’s just me – but I made a track called ‘Calico Skies’ a while ago [for the 1997 album Flaming Pie ], which George [Martin] produced. And at the same time, because I was in the studio and had an extra minute or so, I had this other song, so I said, ‘let me knock this one off.’ That was ‘When Winter Comes’, and I mention George because it was on a George Martin produced session, but is just me on the guitar. It was nearly going to be a bonus extra that was going to be on a reissue of Flaming Pie , but I’d just been reading that great book on Elvis, Last Train To Memphis, and it mentioned a song and said you’ve probably never heard it because it was buried as a bonus on the B-side of an album. So I thought, no, I’d rather have this one as a proper track. And we finished the album with it because it was the reason for doing the whole thing, because me and my mate Geoff Dunbar, who’s an animation director, were talking about making an animated film to that song. So that’s where the opening and closing tracks come from, which got me into the studio in the first place.

Animated music video for this song:

I strongly identify with the song, and this video legitimately made me tear up a little (while grinning delightedly the whole time). It’s so pure and wholesome and just everything good and nice that’s always lacking in an imperfect world. a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Doesn’t surprise me to learn it comes from the “Calico Skies” era… I knew I liked it for a reason heart

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

And here’s the full animated video. It’s directed by Geoff Dunbar, and also featured an instrumental piece titled ‘Winter Sun’ at the end.

Yeah summer solstice was 2 days ago. Even though we’ve been having decidedly wintery weather the last few days – cold, rainy, windy…

It is a wintery song, I see what you mean

This is possibly my favorite from the album after the first listen.
