Paul McCartney Facebook Party Reveals Album Details
Paul McCartney revealed a few more details about his forthcoming record, Egypt Station, in a Facebook Q&A session broadcast live from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Liverpool, U.K.
The record, due Sept. 7, opens with the sounds of “a [train] station noise…and then a choir swells out of that, so it’s like ‘Heavenly Station’ now…And then it goes into the first song.”
He said the album is structured as a journey to “take you somewhere” as opposed by recent offerings by Beyonce or Taylor Swift, which he said were “a collection of singles.”
As for songs he wished he has written, he told host Jarvis Cocker of Pulp that would be written is Sting‘s “Fields of Gold,” jokingly revealing that he once told the ex-Police frontman, “You stole my song.”
As for favorite songwriters, that would be no mystery: Fellow Beatles band mates John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Plus: Stevie Wonder.
As if that isn’t enough Paul, the musician is set to play yet another secret gig in Liverpool today (July 26).
