Paul McCartney‘s new album is to be called ‘New’ and will be released on 14 October 2013.
The record will be McCartney’s first ‘proper’ studio album since 2007’s Memory Almost Full, his longest gap between pop records in his 50-year career.
The title track for the album has been made available, with Paul describing it to the BBC as “catchy”, adding, “it’s summery, it’s a love song. I think people will recognise it as definitely me.”
The track was produced by Mark Ronson, but four different producers have contributed to the album, including Paul Epworth, who co-wrote and produced Adele’s Bond theme Skyfall. Ethan Johns and, most intriguingly Giles Martin (son of George, of course), are the other two producers who worked on the record.
‘New’ will be a 12-track album, with iTunes showing a ‘Deluxe Edition’ of 14 tracks. There is likely to be a physical deluxe too, with enhanced packaging, as well as a vinyl version. It will be interesting to see with McCartney bothers with physical single releases.
No song titles are currently available, other than ‘New’. Amazon US have a pre-order available for the standard CD.
