COMING SOON: THE ART OF MCCARTNEY


A release of that Paul McCartney tribute disc we learned about back in 2012 will finally come to be.  Arctic Poppy Records made the announcement today.  Jeff Lynne is among the many performers who contributed a track.

From their web site:

A celebration of one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century and possibly the largest selling composer of all time. Sir Paul McCartney has written many of the world’s best-known songs, and the project features some of the biggest stars in the music industry performing his and the Beatles’ greatest tracks alongside McCartney’s own backing musicians. 
The double album is set to be one of the stand out releases of 2014. Box set and collectors editions will be available in summer 2014, with the album scheduled for release in the autumn.


The tracks listed so far (without performer line-up):

Live and Let Die
Let It Be
When I'm 64
Yesterday
Drive My Car
All My Loving
Things We Said Today
The Long And Winding Road
Hello Goodbye
Hey Jude
Let Me Roll It
PS I Love You
Listen To What The Man Said
Every Night

More as we find it.

If I had to guess, I'd say Jeff is doing PS, I Love You.

Things We Said Today is said to be performed by Bob Dylan

I would enjoy if Jeff drifted appart from the old songs and do one ofe these: The Long And Winding Road, Live and Let Die, Let It Be, Hey Jude.

But im almost sure it will be All My Loving or PS, I Love You

I saw an interview with Paul Rodgers where he said he recorded Let Me Roll It.
