Paul McCartney, 'New': Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Oct. 15
As his Out There tour winds down a massive U.S. jaunt that included stops at Bonnaroo, Brooklyn's Barclays Center and Outside Lands, McCartney is prepping a return to pop-rock with a gaggle of A-list producers. Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth and Ethan Johns are among the confirmed collaborators tapped for 'NEW,' which will be the Beatle's 16th solo album and first "rock" record since 2007's "Memory Almost Full" after dabbling in classical (2011's "Ocean's Kingdom") and jazz (2012's "Kisses on the Bottom"). Expect some new rhythms from McCartney: In July he collaborated with EDM act Bloody Beetroots for the single "Out of Sight."
