Paul McCartney / McCartney III 'indies-only' white vinyl LP
McCartney III - white vinyl LP
Release date now 18th December
Paul McCartney's McCartney III was recorded in isolation during lockdown (or what he calls 'Rockdown')
The album is described as a "stripped, self-produced solo work marking the opening of a new decade" and was built mostly from live takes of Paul on vocals and guitar/piano, overdubbing bass, drums, etc. atop this foundation.
McCartney III spans a vast and intimate range of modes and moods, from soul searching to wistful, from playful to raucous and all points between" and informs us that Paul has captured this audio with some of the same gear from his 'Rude Studio' used as far back as 1971 Wings sessions. Instruments used include Bill Black's double bass (bought for him by Linda many year's ago), alongside Paul's own Hofner bass, and a mellotron from Abbey Road Studios used on Beatles recordings.
This is a special white vinyl pressing exclusive to indie record shops.
This is a pre-order. McCartney III is released on 11 December 2020
