My favorite Beatle has a new album coming out, Electric Arguments, under his side project group, The Fireman. Telegraph talks to Sir Paul and links to a free mp3. Only McCartney can record an album the way he has this one. I personally love the thrill of going into a project without knowing what the outcome would be – given the restrictions. I’d done that with a short film of mine three years ago. It tests you and, frankly, is liberating.
An excerpt from the Telegraph piece:
The 13 songs were each written and recorded in a day, with McCartney playing instruments and Youth manning the recording desk. The idea of singing vocal lines was a spontaneous one, with the result that McCartney had to make up lyrics on the spot.
