From The Guardian, February 22, 2023:
Paul McCartney is set to feature on a new song by the Rolling Stones, the Guardian can confirm. While a Variety report from earlier this week stated that both surviving members of the Beatles – McCartney and Ringo Starr – would play on a Stones record slated for release later this year, a representative for the Stones clarified that McCartney plays bass on one new song, and that Starr has not been collaborating with the band.
The record – which has not yet been announced but will be the Stones’ 31st studio album – will feature the band’s touring drummer Steve Jordan, as well the late Charlie Watts, who recorded his parts before his death in August 2021. Per the Stones’ representative, McCartney entered the studio with Rolling Stones members Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in Los Angeles during the album’s mixing stages to lay down a bass track. The album was produced by Andrew Watt, who has worked on recent albums by Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osbourne and Eddie Vedder, as well as Britney Spears and Elton John’s 2022 collaboration Hold Me Closer. […]
From The Times, February 22, 2023:
“Mick and Keith were working on the new album in a studio in Los Angeles and Paul McCartney was down the hall. They invited him to play bass on one track,” says a spokesman for the Rolling Stones. “He’s not singing and Ringo isn’t on it at all. The drumming is by Steve Jordan, who is also a very good producer. And there are tracks on there featuring Charlie Watts.”
