More Info:

The 17th studio album by Sir Paul McCartney invites you on a musical journey to 'Egypt Station'.

Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, 'Egypt Station' is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping 'New'.

Preceded by two of its tracks: plaintive ballad ‘I Don’t Know’ and raucous stamper ‘Come On To Me’, Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words Egypt Station. It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.. Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”
