‘HOME TONIGHT’ / ‘IN A HURRY’
TWO BRAND NEW SONGS OUT NOVEMBER 22ND ON CAPITOL RECORDS
RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE DOUBLE A-SIDE 7″ PICTURE DISC OUT NOVEMBER 29TH

Paul has an announcement sure to top fans’ Black Friday shopping lists: On November 22nd Paul will digitally release two never-before-heard tracks—’Home Tonight’ and ‘In A Hurry’—followed by a very limited Record Store Day exclusive double A-side 7-inch picture disc single on November 29th.

Both ‘Home Tonight’ and ‘In A Hurry’ were recorded during the Greg Kurstin sessions for Paul’s #1 charting album Egypt Station.

The limited edition vinyl picture disc will feature new and exclusively created artwork based upon the parlour game exquisite corpse along with a lyric insert.

From Record Store Day website:

The limited edition vinyl picture disc will feature new artwork exclusively created for this RSD Black Friday release, based on the parlour game Exquisite Corpse, and includes a lyric insert.

About the design of the single, from BeatlesBlogger:

One of the most striking things about Paul McCartney’s Egypt Station LP from last year was the amazing cover design – both for the initial release, and for the Explorer’s Edition which came later.

The art directors hired for those projects were Ferry Gouw, an illustrator, graphic designer and video director, and Gary Card, a set designer, illustrator and artist. Both are based in London. They took an original McCartney painting and extended out its themes and style across many panels (for both the CD and the LP) in colourful and spectacular ways.

Turns out the latest McCartney vinyl single, the limited edition picture disc just issued on Record Store Day Black Friday with two tracks recorded during the Egypt Station sessions but never released, is also designed by Card and Gouw. Again, the design looks fantastic.

Ferry Gouw posted this message on his Instagram account over the weekend: “Made this for @paulmccartney for his Record Store Day release (really great songs). This was based on a card that my dad bought me some time ago, you spin the wheels n the faces get jumbled up.”

The official press release says that the design is also inspired by the parlour game/collaborative drawing method known as Exquisite Corpse. […]
