About

From paulmccartney.com, November 20, 2020:

It only comes this time of year… Holidays is the next instalment in a series of streaming-only EPs released in the countdown to McCartney III. The EP features a mix of festive songs Paul has written over the years, from the reflective number one single ‘Pipes of Peace’ to the family favourite ‘Wonderful Christmastime’, and party anthem ‘Coming Up’.

With the December release of McCartney III, expect more seasonal songs finding their way to you… But, until then, soundtrack your Thanksgiving baking and your Christmas wrapping with some Paul McCartney holiday classics.
