‘Highway’ is the fifth song on Electric Arguments, the third album credited to The Fireman.

Electric Arguments was released in the UK on 24 November 2008, and 25 November 2008 in the USA.

‘Highway’ was one of two songs from the album, along with ‘Sing The Changes’, to be added to McCartney’s live set following the release.

McCartney first performed ‘Highway’ live at the Coachella Festival on 17 April 2009. Thereafter it was played throughout his Summer Live 09 Tour.

A live recording, recorded at New York’s Citi Field on 21 July 2009, was released later that year on Good Evening New York City.

‘Highway’ was retained in McCartney’s set during 2009’s Good Evening Europe Tour and 2010-11’s Up And Coming Tour, after which it was dropped. His final concert performance of the song was on 20 December 2010 at Liverpool’s O2 Academy.

It was, however, performed occasionally during soundchecks during his On The Run Tour in 2011-12, and the Out There Tour from 2013-15.
