Paul McCartney To Release Pop Standards Album

This is…um, different!

Paul McCartney has just finished recording an album that's devoted to covers of pop standards from the pre-rock years.

He worked with an orchestra to record nearly a dozen songs, including some with Diana Krall and her band.

Explaining the album, Paul says:

"It’s my dad’s style of music. I’ve wanted to do that kind of thing forever, since the Beatle days. But then Rod [Stewart] went mad on it. I thought, 'I have to wait so it doesn’t look like I’m trying to do a Rod.'

They’re just songs I admire, I’m trying to steer away from the obvious ones It’s get-home-from-work music. You put it on and get a glass of wine."

Paul also plans on going in the opposite direction and will begin work on another album that will feature "heavier rock." And he hopes to work with Dave Grohl on the new tracks. Paul says:

"It sounds quite wacky, but it keeps it fresh. I love that – you get a crazy idea and go with it. You never know – I may run into a garage to make this other album.

But it won't be in Dave's garage."

Wow, the man is in his late 60s and he still knows how to make great music and stay current. We applaud Paul and can't wait to hear his new albums!
