First Listen: Paul McCartney, ‘Kisses On The Bottom’ [Exclusive Interview, Album Stream]

[photogallerylink id=92120 align=left]Kisses On The Bottom is a work born of intense inspiration and affection — and possibly most important of all fun. The album is a collection of standards Paul grew up listening to in his childhood as well as two new McCartney compositions ‘My Valentine’ and ‘Only Our Hearts’.

With the help of Grammy Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band—as well as guest appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, McCartney’s new album is a deeply personal journey through classic American compositions that, in some cases, a young Paul first heard his father perform on piano at home.

In the below audio clips, Paul explains how songs featured on Kisses On The Bottom had influenced the songwriting of the Beatles, how it feels to be a British icon and Diana Krall’s influence on Kisses.
