Paul McCartney is working on his first new solo album since his 2013 album, New. After bringing in two member’s of Adele’s producing team, McCartney has decided to bring in a third, Greg Kurstin.
Kurstin, who oversaw the smash hit “Hello,” will be collaborating on this as-yet-untitled studio project. New was co-produced by Mark Ronson and Paul Epworth, both of whom have also previously worked with Adele.
“I’m making a new album, which is great fun. I’m in the middle of that,” McCartney told BBC 6 Music (via NME). “I’m working with a producer I first worked with two years ago on a piece of music I’m doing for an animated film. He went on to work with Beck, and got Best Album of the Year with Beck. Then he went on to work with Adele and has just got Song of the Year, Record of the Year, with Adele of course, and just got Producer of the Year. My only worry is, people are going to go, ‘Oh there’s Paul going with the flavor of the month.’”
McCartney also talked about he understands he won’t sell like he used to, especially in the digital age “I’ll put out my next album, but I won’t think I’m gonna sell a lot,” McCartney said last year. “I’m putting it out because I have songs that I like.”
