One of Paul McCartney’s most treasured assets is that on some level his music will always be reminiscent of The Beatles. How could it not be? Macca’s never been better than when he embraces that asset, and so it is that McCartney fans the world over are in for a treat because the second single from his forthcoming 16th studio album plays right into his distant past whilst never sounding derivative.
ONE OF McCARTNEY’S STRONGEST singles, “Queenie Eye” is an up-tempo rocker with elements that harken back to the anarchistic final minute of “I Am The Walrus.” With some lyrics inspired by a game that he played as a child on the streets of Liverpool, this song has components of Sir Paul as a youth, as a Beatle and as a contemporary music-maker.
PAUL EPWORTH (ADELE, Florence + The Machine) produced “Queenie Eye”; New also features songs produced by Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns and George Martin’s son Giles.
“THE NEXT THING FOR ME is to get together with the band and learn the whole album,” says McCartney. “I'm really looking forward to it—I've never done that ‘Play the entire album’ thing. People have asked me about this before and I’ve always said I've got too much other stuff to play, but now I'm really excited to see how the songs will sound.”
