About

From paulmccartney.com, December 2016:

Paul: ‘Pure McCartney’ was good to release. I like that album. I have to give Nancy Jeffries from our New York office a lot of credit for that, because it was her idea originally. She said she’d been on a drive and she compiled a mixtape sort of thing. She thought it was so nice, listening to these songs you didn’t listen to normally. So I liked that. We worked together, and she did most of the work. I made a couple of suggestions on sequencing and things. I agreed that it was a nice idea, if you’re going on a long journey. And a few people wrote to me and said, “We’ve just been on a long journey and we played the album”.

I think that worked, and it was interesting for me to hear things like ‘Arrow Through Me’, which I hadn’t heard forever! It was nice to just hear them. I remember Abe’s [Abe Laboriel Jr., the drummer from Paul’s touring band] brother brought that into a session they did this year, “Have you heard this?” And Abe hadn’t heard it, and they were grooving away. It’s a pretty funky little thing.
