To mark the launch of his NEW album, Paul is to give his first-ever live Twitter Q&A this week.

NEW, Paul’s first studio album of brand new solo material in six years, sees him working with producers Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth, Ethan Johns and Giles Martin.

Paul will take to Twitter to answer questions about his forthcoming release and the recording process. Fans can send in questions via Twitter by using the hashtag #askMacca.


melissa ‏@dollybird1963: Why did you call the new album ‘New’?

Paul McCartney: Thanks @dollybird1963 I was playing around with more poetic titles but NEW was a simple word and the name of a song on the album

Allen Ramon ‏@allen_sosa: I can’t wait for the New album! What song are you the most proud of on the album? Thank you ! #loveyaman

Paul McCartney: Cheers @allen_sosa I like ‘Early Day’s and the hidden track which is called ‘Scared’. But I like them all.

Paul McCartney: Thanks @WiressBeetee At meeting about the album cover someone came up with the logo, another said you could treat it in style of Dan Flavin
