Paul McCartney New Album In February 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on December 20, 2011

Sir Paul McCartney has released details of an upcoming new album in February. According to NME, the album will feature appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.

The untitled album will be released around the 6th of February and will feature covers of songs he listened to in his childhood, and inspired him as an early songwriter.

When speaking on his website about the songs he’s chosen, he said:

“When I kind of got into songwriting, I realised how well structured these songs were and I think I took a lot of my lessons from them.

“I always thought artists like Fred Astaire were very cool. Writers like Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, all of those guys – I just thought the songs were magical,” he added. “And then, as I got to be a songwriter, I thought it’s beautiful, the way they made those songs’.”

Giving an insight into the studio sessions, he revlead:

“It was very spontaneous, kind of organic, which then reminded me of the way we’d work with The Beatles.”

“We’d bring a song in, kick it around, when we found a way to do it we’d say ‘Okay, let’s do a take now’ and by the time everyone kind of had an idea of what they were doing, we’d learnt the song. So that’s what we did, we did the take live in the studio.”

McCartney reissued two of his solo albums, 1970′s McCartney and 1980′s McCartney II earlier this year. Both albums feature fancy remastering and bonus material.
