From Liverpool Echo, July 28, 2017:
Beatles legend Paul McCartney has written a song about Donald Trump on his new album. Macca was speaking to students at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) when he made the announcement. While McCartney, 75, didn’t imply whether the song was in favour of the US President or not, he did say that he felt he HAD to write it.
He told students at LIPA : “Sometimes the situation in the world is so crazy, that you’ve got to address it.”
From paulmccartney.com, December 23, 2017:
[…] We asked Paul, “What would you like to achieve in 2018?”
Paul: “I’ll probably be putting out a new album. So, I’d like that to be something I really love and then hopefully the fans will love it too! We’re putting the finishing touches to it now and at the beginning of next year. So, I would like to achieve making that a really great album. Fingers crossed! That’s not what it’s called, but fingers crossed! [Pauses] It could be… it COULD be the new album title!” […]
From macca-news, October 2017:
In interviews with Brazilian newspapers, promoting his upcoming shows in the South American country, McCartney revealed he is still working on his new album. Paul also confirmed he wrote a song about Brazil, as rumored before, but that he won’t play the track on one of the Brazilian gigs:
Paul: “Between one show and another, I’m making the new album. And it’s interesting because there’s a special track for Brazil, but that’s all I can tell you right now. I think you’ll like this.”
The new album was actually thought to be released this year, but McCartney stated that it’s not finished yet and that he is still working on it:
Paul: “I have about three quarters of the material. I’ve recorded some songs and see which ones can become the best. Probably this album will be released sometime next year.”
From paulmccartney.com, March 29, 2018:
“You’re known to experiment with musical genres. Have you ever thought of exploring some of the Latin American genres like son, rumba, salsa, merengue, tango, samba, etc.?”
Paul replied, “Thanks for your question, Yvonne. And yeah, once or twice! You know I’ve done something along those lines. My new album actually has something which is decidedly Latin. But I don’t know if it will make the cut. You never know with these things, but I think it will and people will understand what I’m talking about when they hear it. But I love Latin rhythms and have often experimented with them, but not a definitive thing like a tango or a salsa. It’s more the general rhythms of the country that I love.”
On June 9th, Paul McCartney performed a gig in Liverpool when he played a song from the upcoming new album!
