‘I Can Bet’ is the 10th song on Paul McCartney’s 16th solo studio album New.

My concern about working with Paul on New was that he might be jaded, that everything I ever suggested he must have done hundreds of times before. But he treats everything like it’s the first time. He’s not scared of putting a guitar through a Leslie speaker just because The Beatles did. After all, everyone else does it. There’s one on New – ‘I Can Bet’ – if you made a record without using the tricks The Beatles used, it would be complete silence. But he never looks back, and he always wants to try new things.
