Road is the 12th song on Paul McCartney’s 16th solo studio album New.
Further overdubs were later recorded at AIR Studios, London and Henson Studios, Los Angeles, with McCartney adding piano, keyboards, celeste and other instruments.
I guess with that one we were aiming for something that was a little more esoteric and musically complex than the others I’d worked on. It’s like a journey. That actually started out with me on drums and him on Moog and it sounded like something by The Fall or Can.
NME, November 2013
Disregarding bonus tracks on various editions, Road was the final listed song on the New album. On the standard release it was followed by the hidden track Scared.
