Per wikipedia, New (stylized as NEW) is the sixteenth solo studio album by English musician Paul McCartney, released on October 11, 2013 through MPL Communications, Hear Music, and Universal International. The album was his first since 2007’s Memory Almost Full to consist entirely of new compositions.

I haven’t heard this album, but this morning I came across a brand new video for one of the songs from it, called, “Appreciate,” which was released on October 23 of this year.   The song is amazing but it is mostly for the music video I am sharing it.  What a brilliant concept!

    Very cool. Paul can still rock. I got one of his recent albums out of the library and it was quite good.

      I think I’m going to try and find this album, which is NEW to me 😉 On another great, Bono did an extended interview with Colbert a couple of days ago and did a spoken “With or Without You” intro to his song on there. He’s promoting his new (and only) book, which sounds very good. Check him out on youtube. He’s a sharp cookie and more talent in his little finger than most have in their whole bodies.

        Bono is not one of my faves. He’s been all over the papers here. He did have some interesting things to say though. But I always feel like he’s trying too hard.

          What did you think of his spoken intro to the song? I thought it was so beautiful.

            Much better than the song itself.

  2. While I think it’s fair to say Paul McCartney has written better songs, the video is kind of cool. What I find amazing that after more than 60 years(!) Paul is still writing new music and is open to collaborate with much younger, often very different artists.

    Contrast that with Billy Joel who hasn’t released a new pop song since his “River of Dreams” from August 1993. This is not to criticize Joel but just to illustrate the contrast.

      Very well-said, Christian. Macca is one of the great musical minds. I have no doubt Geo would still be making new music if he was still alive. I heard a new (to me) tune on Spotify by The Traveling Willburys the other day (finally was able to re-synch my phone to the car radio, after myriad tries!) and was bowled over at how good it was. I wonder…. if once great music makers pass on they create new music in heaven and then channel it back to earth? Yes, it’s a metaphysical pondering but still… What do you think?

      1. Traveling Wilburys are a great example of a super group that worked really well – not a given when you have a lineup of such huge artists like Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Jeff Lynn. I guess they must have put any egos aside and been great collaborators. I think they also really appreciated each other.

        As to great music artists continuing to create music in heaven, I don’t know about that. It’s a beautiful thought though! What I do know is the music they made on earth is here to stay like a beautiful painting – not only for earthlings to enjoy but inspiring to the next generation of artists. I think that’s where the true power or music and other forms of art is.

    That is a cool video. He looks like he made it at the time.

        Yes…he looks like he did it at that time doesn’t he?
        I just looked it up and yea it was made back then…I’m not sure why now it suddenly got re-released or released again. It doesn’t matter Lisa…it’s great anyway! Very clever idea.

          Thank you for the clarification! I wonder what it would look like if they re-did it with today’s technology???

            I know… I think about that alot with things. Like the original Star Trek…I sometimes wonder if they could do little things to it.
