OT: Paul McCartney - "New" album and other Macca stuff
Posted by: stonehearted ()
Date: August 14, 2013 10:25

Sir Paul McCartney has teamed up with Giles Martin, son of The Beatles producer Sir George Martin, as well as Adele's producer Paul Epworth and Sir Tom Jones collaborator Ethan Johns for his new album.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Paul's team are very excited about the album. They hope it will take him back to the top of the pop charts. The people working with him certainly know how to do that."

Paul McCartney on his new album: 'I think you're going to like this one'

Paul McCartney tells writer Simon Vozick-Levinson in the Aug. 29 issue of Rolling Stone his new album is a “really cool adventure.”

The album, as yet untitled, has been in the works more than a year with a quartet of producers – Mark Ronson, Adele's Paul Epworth, Ethan Johns (of Kings of Leon) and Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin. A previous report said the album would be out by the end of the year.

His last effort so far - Kisses On The Bottom is absolutely excellent. True, it is not a typical album, it is Paul singing oldies (except of one own composition), but it is just great.

Anyway, I find the title misleading - he will work with a son of a famous producer (George Martin) and a guy who collaborated with someone famous (Tom Jones). How does that fulfill the title "McCartney hires stars," I don't know. The only star here is Paul. Typical bollocks of The Sun.

Actually when I read the sentence: "...son of The Beatles producer Sir George Martin..." my brain authomacicaly read: "sons of The Beatles" and I got really scared. That's what a certain freak on this forum had done to me. One day soon I will be affraid to look at this forum :-)

For me Chaos and Creation was outstanding. However, that was the last thing by him that I love. I have high hopes for this new record. It's certainly within his reach to produce something great.

Let's not forget the edgy experimental brilliance of his 2008 album (with Youth) called Electric Arguments [by "The Fireman"].

He did some interesting work with Nigel Goodrich. I'd like to see him collaborate more with Dave Grohl. He certainly seemed to be fired up by tha.

His run of albums from Flaming Pie through to Memory Almost Full were pretty good. I didn't care for Kisses On The Bottom too much but I hold hope that he new one will be pretty good. I think Paul is in a good place in his head right now and that will reflect in the songs.

Flaming Pie, Dance Tonight and Fine Line are great songs.

He's also been touring a bit in the last year, so your point is rather moot.

At 71, McCartney is still as prolific and active as he ever was, certainly more so the last several years. The guy still ventures into new territory and goes out of his comfort zone quite a bit. You have to admire him for not playing it safe. He could have completely withdrawn musically after Linda's death.

Ethan Johns is a good choice, really like his production (simple!) - if I could choose, he would be the one producing the Stones.

At the risk of upsetting a lot of people...my impression is that Paul has spent most of the last 30 or 40 years up his own *rse.

Yeah he is.

I was a huge fan in the Wings era...but ever since then it's as though he's just playing at it, dabbling in this that or the other as takes his fancy,

Joking aside, he's got nothing to prove . Maybe he just knows that and doesn't sweat on anything any more.

I have to give the guy credit for consistently touring and recording the last 30 to 40 years and not sitting on his as you say "*rse" like some other musicians (rod the mod to name one)

I think he is missing Daaaahni, Jaaaaames Macca and Julian Lennon - then it would have peeeerfect.

He has the ears of many fans as he is seems to be constantly touring. I hope he can seize the opportunity and produce something great.

He just finished playing a couple Western Canada shows in Winnipeg and Regina and he played Seattle last month. I believe I read just last year around the time he came to Vancouver in November that since he left the Beatles, he's only played around 350 concerts? Can that be right?

To correct my last post, I went on his website and it shows all the concerts he's done. At this point, just under 600, which still isn't that many in 42 years!

Would love for the infamous McCartney/Richards penned track to see the light of day.

Heaven forbid that he should have a family life and that this might limit the number of shows he plays. Priorities old chap.

Oh definitely priorities, but averaging less than 15 shows a year! From 1970 til 1989 he only played 139 shows which is less than 10 per year, although he didn't tour at all in the 1980's. His most consistent touring ironically has been in the last decade!

That Memories Almost Full album got some good reviews, but imo I lost interest in any of his remaining solo material/releases since Pipes of Peace. So even with Giles Martin helping out, I'm not expecting much.

However, I hope he tours (in America) again to promote te new album. I missed him the last time at the Barclay in Brooklyn.

No way. His last Fireman album, Electric Arguments is bloody fantastic. And could well be his best solo album. Mature, adventurous, hard hitting, eclectic, and whimsical. All things good about McCartney. Memory Almost Full is another amazing album with some truly classic Macca. It is an album of covers, but Run Devil Run, his first album after Linda's death is one of the best covers albums made. Flaming Pie is good, but imo Electric Arguments is far better. You should check it out.
