Paul McCartney Kisses On The Bottom
Release Date: February 7, 2012
Label: MPL/Hear Music/Concord
While many a musician is often asked about the tunes that have influenced their songwriting, it is not a question Paul McCartney ordinarily gets to answer - until now. Paul is about to offer a glimpse into 'the songs which inspired the songs' with the release of a brand new album of those standards he grew up listening to in his childhood - plus two brand new McCartney compositions.
With the help of Grammy Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band - as well as guest appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder - McCartney's new album is a deeply personal journey through classic American compositions that, in some cases, a young Paul first heard his father perform on piano at home.
As authentic and daring a musical statement as he could make, this is the album Paul has been thinking about making for more than 20 years.
