About

From paulmccartney.com:

Paul’s first studio album of the 1990 came four years after the critically and commercially successful Flowers In The Dirt. As with that album, Off The Groundfeatured some collaborations with Elvis Costello, in ‘Mistress And Maid’ and ‘The Lovers That Never Were’. In fact, all the lyrics were given a thorough test, as Paul recalled at the time. “When I came to do this album one of the things I thought was that it might be good to be a little less casual and make sure I’d done my homework, make sure I liked all of the words in the songs. So I got a friend of mine, a poet called Adrian Mitchell, to look through the lyrics as if he was an English teacher. I went through it all with him and I can now say that they’re poet-proof.”
