Global music icon Paul McCartney is back today with his brand new stunning album ‘McCartney III‘
The new album ‘McCartney III‘ is a stripped-back, self-produced, and, quite literally, solo work in the tradition of 1970’s McCartney and 1980’s McCartney II. Recorded earlier this year during “Rockdown” in Sussex, McCartney III is mostly built from live takes of Paul on vocals and guitar or piano, overdubbing his bass playing, drumming, etc. atop that foundation.
The process first sparked when Paul returned to an unreleased track from the early 90s, “When Winter Comes” (recorded with George Martin). Paul crafted a new passage for the song, giving rise to album opener “Long Tailed Winter Bird”—while “When Winter Comes,” featuring its new 2020 intro “Winter Bird,” became the new album’s grand finale.
The new album from the global Icon, McCartney III finds Paul back on his own, turning unexpected circumstances into a personal snapshot of a timeless artist at a unique point in history.
The newest and most in depth look at the McCartney III creative process surfaced this week in the form of the “Find My Way” video Directed by Roman Coppola, the shoot utilized no less than 46 cameras to capture Paul on every instrument and from every angle, resulting in an unprecedented and intimate glimpse into Paul creating and performing a McCartney III highlight.
Next week Paul will join Apple Music’s Zane Lowe for an in-depth conversation about ‘McCartney III’. Tune in at apple.co/_Zane.
