‘Lalula’ the only new track on Twin Freaks, Paul McCartney’s 2005 remix album with producer Roy Kerr (aka The Freelance Hellraiser).

Kerr accompanied McCartney on his 2004 European tour, opening each show with a 25-minute DJ set in which various tracks by the former Beatle were reworked and reinvented. Impressed with the results, McCartney asked Kerr to remix 12 songs for an album.

Those of you who were there for the European Tour will have heard our DJ, Freelance Hellraiser, cooking up some mixes before we came on and people have been enquiring about these mixes ever since. Well the good news is he’s put together an album called ‘Twin Freaks’ using fragments from my original multi-tracks which we hope will rock your little cotton socks!

The first fruits were the ‘Really Love You’ single, in which the Flaming Pie song was converted from a simple jam into a dance-based track. It featured drums from ‘What’s That You’re Doing?’, a collaboration with Stevie Wonder from the Tug Of War album.

The b-side was ‘Lalula’, a new composition which featured the riff from ‘Old Siam, Sir’, from Wings’ 1979 album Back To The Egg, as well as guitars from the 1971 b-side ‘Oh Woman, Oh Why’.
