The official website of Rolling Stone recently shared an interview which involved pop music artist Taylor Swift as the interviewer and The Beatles’ bassist and co-lead vocalist Paul McCartney was being interviewed for his new solo album ‘McCartney III.’
As you may remember, Paul McCartney just released his 18th solo album named ‘McCartney III’ which he had been teasing with cryptic messages via his official social media accounts for a long time.
Similar to previous McCartney albums, the instrumental work in ‘McCartney III’ was recorded by McCartney himself, which makes the album stand out. The iconic musician opened up about the recording process during the trailer for his new album.
Here is what McCartney said:
“Each day I’d start recording with the instrument I wrote the song on and then gradually layer it all up; it was a lot of fun. It was about making music for yourself rather than making music that has to do a job. So, I just did stuff I fancied doing. I had no idea this would end up as an album.”
The official website of Rolling Stone magazine released a brand new interview in which Taylor Swift interviews Sir Paul McCartney about his long-awaited solo album. During that interview even though Swift mostly praised ‘McCartney III,’ she also stated that there is a flexible muscle that allowed McCartney to record every song by himself.
Although Swift expressed her deductions, ultimately McCartney disagreed with her stating that he had to learn the instruments over the years rather than only having talent and suddenly playing them.
Here is what Swift said:
“I listened to your new record. And I loved a lot of things about it, but it really did feel like a kind of flex to write, produce, and play every instrument on every track. To me, that’s like flexing a muscle and saying, ‘I can do all this on my own if I have to.'”
Here is how McCartney reacted to Taylor Swift’s comment:
“Well, I don’t think like that, I must admit. I just picked up some of these instruments over the years. We had a piano at home that my dad played, so I picked around on that. I wrote the melody to ‘When I’m 64’ when I was, you know, a teenager.”
Paul McCartney also shared the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone on his official Instagram page, the gorgeous album cover was photographed by McCartney’s daughter and a successful photographer Mary McCartney.
