PAUL MCCARTNEY Drops Two Brand New Tracks…

New sonic impulses

22 November 2019

Still no retirement time for the imperishable PAUL MCCARTNEY. A couple
of days ago he was officially announced as the first headliner for Glastonbury
Festival 2020
and it looks like the ex-Beatle wanted to celebrate that by dropping
two brand new songs today.

The first ‘HOME TONIGHT‘ is pure McCartney: catchy, melodious and uplifting.
The second one is quite different. ‘IN A HURRY‘ is an elaborated pop symphony
with multiple segments and plentiful of polyphonic harmonies. Yep, the man still
knows at 77 how to build, compose and construct appealing pop songs.

Knockouts from the past

27 July 2019

Today 45 years ago, on 27 July 1974 the best-selling artist ever PAUL MCCARTNEY & his WINGS hit the top spot of the albums chart in the UK with their third LP, bestseller ‘BAND ON THE RUN’. One of the highlights was/is the resistlessly catchy ‘MRS. VANDEBILT‘. The track was released as a single in Continental Europe and Australia, but weirdly not in the US and the UK.

C’mon sing along ‘Ho, Hey Ho’…

Former Beatle and grand pop singer/songwriter/composer PAUL MCCARTNEY turns 77. He was born in Liverpool on 18 June 1942.

Rip-roaring jingle jangle firepower with echoes of former British post-punks Au Pairs, early punky Talking Heads and their wide awake mentors Parquet Courts. A hip-shaking score!

And when the noise is over Macca comes in and tells you about his life on his best LP (as
