British musician Paul McCartney announced on Wednesday that on December 11 he will publish an album that he has composed alone, in the studio of his family farm, during the confinement of the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Beatle has titled this work "McCartney III", which will be the last installment so far in a personal trilogy that turns 2020 in 50, after the publication of "McCartney" in 1970 and "McCartney II" in 1980, indicates EFE .
The musician has composed and produced all the songs on the album, in which he has also played each of the instruments that appear.
McCartney says he had no intention of publishing a work this year, after releasing "Egypt Station" in 2018, but the time he was confined during the first wave of coronavirus led him to compose more than he had planned.
"I was living a life of confinement on the farm, with my family, and came into my studio every day," McCartney said in a statement on his website.
His creative process was ignited from “some things that he had worked on over the years” and that had been “half finished”.
“I just did what I wanted to do. I had no idea if this would end up as an album, "said the musician, who began writing after listening to an old song from the early 1990s that he had not released," When Winter Comes. "
To the original material, McCartney added new passages to shape “Long Tailed Winter Bird,” the opening theme for the new work.
While the photographs that appeared in "McCartney" and "McCartney II" had been taken by his first wife, Linda, who died in 1998, this time the images accompanying the album are of his daughter Mary, his nephew Sonny, as well as some that he has made himself with his mobile phone.
