Online reports say this was produced by Mick Ronson, who obviously likes the kind of production George Martin gave Revolver back in the day.

There are shades of lots of classic, mid-period Beatles tunes, like "Penny Lane" and "Good Day Sunshine," and more than a hint of McCartney's love for Brian Wilson and Pet Sounds, but overall this is just a very nice little pop song. Paul's falsetto is a sweet hook, too.

Long Live Macca!

But we've been to those pages and all say "Mark Ronson", with an obvious typo in the headline of the first news story.

Nice Paul! The keyboards reminds very much of "Fixing a hole" from SGT Pepper.

Just listened to the song "On My Way To Work" from the new album - great, convincing song! Will get the album eventually.

Have you listened to the full album yet, Ken? If so, what do you think and what's your favorite song on it? Thanks in advance.

I really love "Queenie Eye." McCartney is really proving that there's no age limit on creativity:

Goodness, don't kill me, but lucky they didn't employ me, lol. We all love Elvis' music, but I just don't get the appreciation of Paul's music. Let me duck for cover and while I run away real fast, lol, with a bullet proof vest on, lol, I'd like to say, I am so pleased that people receive pleasure from music, and we should all have different taste and bring it on :D :smt006

Bloody hell! The album is a killer! I´m a McCartney fan, but I also feel that he has done a couple of lacklustre albums (Wings wild life -71, Press to play -86 and the dull "Off the ground" -93). His better albums has mostly a few fillers. "New" could be one of his best albums since "Band on the run". Hurra!!!!

Agreed.Got the album today and on first impression it's a cracker.Save Us is a great opening track then after the OK Alligator come four belters in a row On My Way To Work (there can't be too many songs that name check Chichester!),Quennie Eye (my favourite on first listen) the acoustic Early Days and New.Hosanna is the only track that didn't do anything for me maybe it's a grower.I got the deluxe version with the two extra tracks and I would advise anyone thinking of getting this to do so as well,the 2nd extra track Get Me Out Of Here is a lot of fun.
It might be called New suggesting some sort of new direction for Paul.I don't think it does that but who cares when the songs are of such quality.

Yes! The bonus tracks are great. Alligator has a strange guitar riff. The album is so good because I feel tah Paul dares to take some risks, but it´s still classic McCartney at its best. It´s incredible this late in his caréer.

I have wondered for a week or so where I have heard that falsetto melody in "New" before. And now I got it. Listen at 0:26-0:33. But it´s still Paul :-)
