Listen: Paul McCartney Releases New Music, Calls in to WXPN

Everyone’s favorite Beatle (OK, living Beatle) is back in the music game this week with the announcement of “New,” Paul McCartney‘s newest song and album of the same name. Philly is getting a little love this time around, though, with the legendary former Beatle calling in to Helen Leicht’s WXPN show today.

With today serving as the anniversary of the Beatles’ final show in San Francisco some 47 years ago, McCartney discussed his past with what is still one of the biggest bands in the world—albeit with an eye on his current musical efforts. Says McCartney of recording New:

“The idea was to go do one track for each one and decide who would be the best for the album. I ended up falling for them all. We had such a good time in different ways. Eathen would be a little more acoustically leaning, Mark would be a little more R&B. They each had a different approach, so I ended up working with them all.”

New will see an October 15 release. In the meantime, listen to the show here. [WXPN]
