Paul McCartney Unveils Video for “New”
Paul McCartney’s bouncy, Beatles-esque new single now has a playful video to match. The clip, which was unveiled yesterday on McCartney’s website, offers a glimpse at the touring life of one of the world’s biggest stars, as Sir Paul and his band travel the world and bring their brand of joy to swooning, dancing, awestruck fans. Check it out below.
McCartney also recently revealed the tracklist for New, which will arrive on October 15 bearing twelve new McCartney compositions. According to Paul, the album finds him stretching out and testing out a variety of styles.
"It's funny, when I play people the album they're surprised it's me. A lot of the tracks are quite varied and not necessarily in a style you'd recognize as mine,” the former Beatle explained. “I didn't want it to all sound the same. I really enjoyed making this album. It's always great to get a chance to get into the studio with a bunch of new songs and I was lucky to work with some very cool producers. We had a lot of fun.”
As for those “very cool producers,” McCartney says he ended up splitting up the producing duties between Paul Epworth, Mark Ronson, Giles Martin and Ethan Johns because each brought his own flavor to the process.
"The original idea was to go to a couple of producers whose work I loved, to see who I got on with best--but it turned out I got on with all of them!” McCartney enthused. “We made something really different with each producer, so I couldn't choose and ended up working with all four. We just had a good time in different ways."
