Return Of The Macca

Sir Paul McCartney described his new record – the first since his split from Heather Mills – as "evocative, emotional, rocking, but I can’t really sum it up in one sentence."

His last album, recorded while he and the much-maligned Mills were still a happy item, was perhaps ominously called Chaos And Creation In The Backyard.

The new offering is called Memory Almost Full.

It will be preceded by a single called "Dance Tonight." The album is his first on Starbucks’ new Hear Music label.
