About

From the Concord press release:

‘Pure McCartney’, a new compilation of his solo, Wings and Fireman work, celebrates that fact, showcasing 67 highlights from one of the most-revered catalogues in music – from ‘McCartney’ in 1970, his debut solo album, right through to ‘Hope For The Future’, his 2014 track taken from ‘Destiny’, the most-anticipated video game of the last decade. Not only is ‘Pure McCartney’ a monumental mix tape of some of popular music’s most memorable moments from 1970 to the present day, it also features curios for the super fans and some of Paul’s personal favourites—all handpicked by the man himself.

Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to,” Paul says of this project.

Maybe it’s to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home or at a party with friends? So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse playlists from various periods of my long and winding career.”

As a songwriter Paul has never stood still, dipping his toe in countless genres and styles. ‘Pure McCartney’ is testament to that fact. From the song writing master class of ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and adventurous, three-songs-in-one of ‘Band On The Run’ to the irresistible groove of ‘Say Say Say’ and ahead-of-its-time electronica of ‘Temporary Secretary’, described by NME when compiling a list of the greatest ever songs as “not so much ahead of its time, but out of it altogether”, ‘Pure McCartney’ charts the unstoppable adventures of McCartney’s unique and eclectic song writing talents and shines a light on his post-Beatles artistic achievements.

The word ‘career’ is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job,” says Paul, reflecting on the ‘Pure McCartney’ tracklisting. “It pleases me, and often amazes me, that I’ve been involved in the writing and recording of so many songs, each of them so different from the others.”
