Just months ago Paul McCartney released his first Billboard Top 200-topping album since 1982, Egypt Station. In the months since, he’s released a handful of music videos (including “Come On To Me” and “Who Cares”) and reissued Wings-era albums (and individual tracks), and now, he’s back with more new music.
Released today, Jan. 2, rather quietly, is Macca’s latest track, “Get Enough.” A collaboration with Zach Skelton and Ryan Tedder (One Republic), it sounds nothing like the music of Egypt Station and is another beast entirely. Out with Schoolboy-at-76 McCartney, in with Robot McCartney.
The heavily—seriously—autotuned track is a far cry from anything heard from the Brit rocker before, opening with reverberating, clean (in comparison to the rest of the track) vocals before he goes full electronica for the duration. Tedder’s influence is heard about two minutes into the track, when a new section begins, bringing with it a hugely sweeping melody and the young frontman’s high-flying vocals before finally returning to McCartney for a rather abrupt ending.
Check out the single below and revisit Paste’s recent feature, “The Case for Paul McCartney,” right here. The former Beatle has a handful of tour dates scheduled for 2019—the tour that recently bore a McCartney/Ringo Starr/Ronnie Wood collaboration—and you can find those dates further down below, beneath a McCartney performance from the Paste archives.
