‘Everybody Out There’ is the eighth song on Paul McCartney’s 16th solo studio album New.

I have been doing a lot of touring. I’ve been down to South America, been in North America, Europe. When you go to places, it’s a football crowd. They got their own chants. You’re hearing like 60,000 people doing this, it’s a great noise. So you come to write, then you start to think, wait a minute I’ve got a little thing in here that they can sing and what if I then said ‘Everybody out there!’. Then I am connecting immediately to the audience. And then what else are you going to say. So it was like ‘You wanna make a difference?’ ‘Stand in a line, if you haven’t got any time I’ll give you some of mine.’ There’s a little message on that one.

One day at AIR. I think we did the whole thing in 3.5 or 4 hours. Even Paul was getting exhausted at the end of it. And we finished around about 7 o’clock at night. And we’ve done the song and that was it. He said to me we were working at Beatles pace.
