‘Opening Station’ is the first track on Egypt Station, Paul McCartney’s 17th solo studio album.

When we decided we were going to call the album Egypt Station I liked the idea of making a montage of sounds that were sort of like a station. So we found one station, and then we added another one to it – the sound effects of real stations – and then we started to make up some little noises that we added to make it like a dreamscape. So the idea being that this kind of dream location was where all this music was going to emanate from.
