Paul McCartney has released a new single “Fuh You” today (Aug. 15).
“Fuh You” is the third single out in support of his upcoming album Egypt Station, which is due in September. “Fuh You” comes after the releases of “I Don’t Know” and “Come On To Me.”
McCartney takes more of a pop direction with the track, delivering fans with an irresistibly catchy chorus, funky bass riffs, and violins. The buoyant song tells a raunchy love story, focusing on a man’s strong desire for a woman who he wants to, you know, “fuh.”
“With this one I was in the studio with Ryan Tedder whereas the rest of the album has been made with Greg Kurstin. We were just thinking of ideas and little pieces of melody and chords and the song just came together bit by bit,” McCartney stated in a press release.
“I would try and make some kind of sense of the story. So it was like ‘Come on baby now. Talk about yourself. Tell the truth, let me get to know you’ and basically I wanna know how you feel, you make me wanna go out and steal. I just want it for you. So that was the basic idea and it developed from there… sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song. There you go – fuh you,” he added.
Egypt Station is available for preorder here.
