Off to London on the morning train, but in the meantime, here's Sir Paul McCartney's new single.
He sang a little bit of it with James Corden the other night, but this is what it sounds like for real. A classic dumb/brilliant funny/sexy rock-and-roll song, with glorious Beatles arrangement/production touches, including Paul's signature bass flourishes, the horns from Pepper or maybe "Lady Madonna,” and even a sitar, as a nod to George. Just fucking great.
Between this and the video from the Corden show, I've gonna totally all Beatlemania for a couple of days. It's a terrific feeling.
