Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney has announced his first album since 2013.
After much speculation on social media, revered rocker Paul McCartney announced the upcoming release of his first studio album in nearly five years according to Universal Music Ireland.
Sharing the title with some of McCartney’s paintings, Egyptian Station is estimated to arrive on September 7. The superstar has already released two double-A side songs including ‘I Don’t Know' and 'Come On To Me'.
“I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.., Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from,” said McCartney.
The album was almost solely produced by Greg Kurstin who has worked with Adele, Beck and the Foo Fighters, with the exception of one track taken by Ryan Tedder.
Additionally two animated lyric videos, produced by Ferry Gouw & Gary Card, accompany the release of the songs.
McCartney raised interest in his new album with a impromptu performance at Liverpool’s own Philharmonic Pub on June 9.
