Paul McCartney Working On New Album With Modern Influences

Paul McCartney tour new albumPaul McCartney is currently working on another album, the follow-up to last year’s very traditional Kisses On The Bottom. According to an interview with producer Mark Ronson in Spin, the next album from Macca will be decidedly different from the last one (with a better title, hopefully.)

In the interview, Ronson said that McCartney had been deriving inspiration from moombahton-a fusion of house music and reggaeton-and mainstream pop, specifically R&B singer Usher. “He played me ‘Climax’ by Usher and told me ‘I love where all the sonics sit in this,'” Ronson said.

Other songs slated for the new album include work that’s closer to classic Paul McCartney, though not as traditional as Kisses on the Bottom. McCartney will be spending most of his 2013 on a massive world tour, including a headlining slot at Bonnaroo, but it’s possible that this new (and likely strange) album could see release by the end of this year.

Got something to say?
