NEW YORK (AP) - Paul McCartney will debut the songs from his new album "Kisses on the Bottom" in a free live streaming performance on iTunes.
The performance takes place at 10 p.m. EST Thursday from Capitol Studios in Los Angeles where much of the new album was recorded.
The news comes just as McCartney has pulled his catalog from subscription services. .Biz yesterday reported yesterday his publisher, Concord Music Group/Hear Music, had ordered the removal. The former Beatle follows the likes of Coldplay and the Black Keys in not allowing their music on streaming sites.
"Kisses on the Bottom" features McCartney's interpretation of several beloved standards like "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," ''Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive" and "Bye Bye Blackbird," and has two new songs, "My Valentine" with Eric Clapton and "Only Our Hearts" with Stevie Wonder.
The former Beatle recorded the album with the help of Diana Krall and her backing band.
