Paul McCartney Drops Brand New Song to Ring in 2019
Paul McCartney rang in the New Year with the release of a new track at the very beginning of 2019.
As the Times Square dropped and the clock struck midnight, McCartney gifted his fans with a brand new song, not included on his most recent studio album, Egypt Station, which arrived on Sept. 7.
The track–which marks McCartney’s continued experimentations with technology and autotune–is a ballad, with the lyrics, “I can’t get enough of, enough of…you.”
The song is co-written by One Republic leader Ryan Tedder, who also provides backing vocals.
He also wished fans a Happy New Year on Twitter, writing, “I hope everyone has a really brilliant New Year, with all the fab things they’ve hoped for coming true. And I hope things work out on all the political fronts – that we get more peace than ever, people look after each other and we have a good time!”
