One of the world’s most celebrated singer-songwriters has released a new song.
Sir Paul McCartney’s first single off of his sixteenth studio album is New.
The title track might sound similar to music lovers as it features similar sounds to some of Sir Paul’s iconic songs with the Beatles.
If you listen very closely, there are shades of “Penny Lane,” catchy choruses that would make listeners reminisce of “Hey Jude,” a horn section from “Got to Get You Into My Life,” simplistic melodies that take a page out of “She Loves You,” “I Saw Her Standing There” and “Love Me Do.”
Multiple media outlets including Billboard, the New York Times and Slate have confirmed that the former Beatle will be releasing the album in October.
Rolling Stone has also confirmed that the 17-time Grammy winner will be working with some top-notch producers including Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns, Paul Epworth and Giles Martin, son of the Beatles’ legendary producer George Martin.
