Song facts

Get Enough” is a song by Paul McCartney that was unexpectedly released on streaming platforms as the calendar turned to 2019 at 12 am eastern time. It was co-written with Ryan Tedder, making it the 3rd song written by the two to be released, after “Fuh You” and “Nothing For Free“.

Get Enough” is a piano ballad that features heavy use of auto-tune to alter McCartney’s voice for effect. From RollingStone:

Paul McCartney transforms a lovelorn piano ballad into a wandering, auto-tuned experiment on “Get Enough.” […] “Get Enough” opens as a straightforward pop tune, with McCartney meditating on melancholy memories (“Do you remember the lights on the shore?”). But the arrangement and production gradually shift, weaving in acoustic guitars, grandiose chord changes, a barely audible spoken word passage and thick vocal processing that lands somewhere between Bon Iver and Kanye West. […]

Get Enough” featured artwork reminiscent of 2018’s Egypt Station, alluding to the deluxe edition of the album, announced in June 2018 and finally released in May 2019.

It was not reported where the track was recorded, but it is likely the work had started at Hog Hill Mill. We also assume some extra work was done when Paul McCartney and Ryan Tedder worked on “Fuh You” in Los Angeles.

I did three tracks with Ryan and [Fuh You] is the one on the album and then there’s two others, they’re nice. We only had a week, because there was a time when Greg was doing something else and my manager rung up and said you could maybe get with another producer, just to switch it up a bit, so he sent me some suggestions and I liked Ryan’s stuff. I rang him, and I think we decided he’d come to my studio for a week and we’d just see how we went. I said, ‘I’ve got a lot of songs we could do,’ but in the end, he just fancied making it up, so we just, you know, we went in with nothing, just got a beat, got a thing, got an idea for some lyrics and just built it up, you know, but he knows what he’s doing.

Lyrics

It was a time when we walked by the docks
I told you, "I need you all of my life"
And watching the tugs rolling by together
Do you remember?
Do you remember the lights on the shore?
How they reflected the rain on the road?
I believed that you love me alone
It was real
Do you remember?
Now and then I see your face
I've been wanting a lovin’ embrace
I've been looking for love, but it gets me nowhere
Oh, yeah, yeah

Get enough, get enough, get enough of (Your love)
Get enough, get enough, get enough of (Your love)
I can't get enough of
Of you

It was a time we were all full of hope
Saw the future burning bright
As we watched the moon rollin’ out to sea
Do you remember?
But those days are erased from my mind
Yeah, I've left all those old days behind
But still I remember your face forever, forever

Get enough, get enough, get enough of (Your love)
Get enough, get enough, get enough of (Your love)
I can't get enough of
Of you

All of your love, all of your love
All of your love, all of your love

Get enough, get enough, get enough, girl
Get enough, get enough, get enough, girl
I can't get enough
Enough of you

Thanks for the kind words, Ville Vuolle ! No drummer credited in the official credits. I guess this is Ryan Tedder doing some drum programming.
