Paul McCartney McCartney III Indies Only Limited White Vinyl
Release Date 18th December 2020
50 years on from the release of his self-titled first solo album McCartney, featuring Paul playing every instrument and writing and recording everysong, Paul McCartney will release McCartney III on December 11. Paul hadn’t planned to release an album in 2020, but in the isolation of’Rockdown,’ he soon found himself fleshing out some existing musicalsketches and creating even more new ones. Before long an eclectic collection of spontaneous songs would become McCartney III:a stripped-back, self-produced and, quite literally, solo work marking the opening of anew decade, in the tradition of 1970’s McCartney and 1980’s McCartney II.
Recorded earlier this year in Sussex (UK), 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. McCartney III spans a vast andintimate range of modes and moods, from soul-searching to wistful,from playful to raucous and all points between — captured with some of thesame gear from Paul’s Rude Studio used as far back as 1971 Wings sessions.
