Sir Paul McCartney is back with something “New” from his new album, New.
Who else but XRT’s Terri Hemmert debuted the song on the airwaves (and stream) of XRT at 11:30 this morning. But even Terri was taken aback when she received a call from Sir Paul himself today, to lend insight and provide some real excitement to the day’s events!
What better way to celebrate XRT’s New Music Thursday than by hearing New music from Paul?!
Hear Paul McCartney’s chat with Terri right here:
Produced by Mark Ronson, the horn-driven pop song is reminiscent of Revolver-era Beatles. Hear the “New” song during XRT’s New Music Thursday. [LISTEN LIVE NOW]
Yes, it seems as if the former Beatle wants to make it abundantly clear that his 16th solo LP is comprised entirely of new material, marking his first such effort in six years. (McCartney’s previous release, 2012′s Kisses on the Bottom, featured reworked pop standards and covers.) New, the album, will be released in the US on October 15th (and elsewhere on the 14th).
Additional album details will be revealed in the coming weeks. It’s also available for purchase via iTunes.
