About

If You Wanna“, a song from 1997 album “Flaming Pie“, was written in Minneapolis during this tour. From the liner notes of the album:

The song [was] composed when Paul McCartney’s “New World Tour” reached Minneapolis, and a day off, in May 1993, which resulted in numerous hours inside a skyscraper hotel room that extended its head into the clouds. Inspired by being in (still then The Artist Known As) Prince’s home city. Paul sat with a guitar and wrote a ‘driving across America’ song.

“I wanted to write something that would reflect America, for when you’re driving across the desert on that big road with the flat horizon. I’ll take you for a ride in my Cadillac…I’ll take you to The Coast for a holiday…When they say The Coast, the don’t mean Blackpool”

Paul McCartney, in Club Sandwich n°82, Summer 1997:

We had a day off in Minneapolis when we were on tour. Linda was going off to do something and I stayed behind in the room and wrote a song on guitar. […] This is the kind of song you might hear when you’re driving across the desert in America, Easy Rider country.
