Let the puns commence!
Sir Paul has announced a new ‘career-spanning’ compilation, due out in June, entitled “Pure McCartney”. There was some speculation a few days ago after Sir Paul released snippets of some remixes of ‘Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five’ that a remix project was in the offing. However, it seems that it was just a precursor to the compilation announcement (neither remix appears on any of the compilation variants, by the way). The full 4 CD tracklisting is listed in the article. FWIW, I think it looks pretty good, and if I’m feeling flush come June, I may put my hand in my pocket for this one. Added bonus – no ‘C Moon’.
Aspiring writers are often told to write about what they know and it’s an adage that Tobias Jesso Jr has taken to heart. With a title like ‘Without You’ there is a strong clue about where and when he’s coming from with this track from his album ‘Goon’ as well as who is inspirations are. Yes, it’s another young singer/songwriter mining the classic balladry of classic singer/songwriters. But oh boy, he does it so well I don’t care. Ignore if you hate that melodic sentimentality Macca sprinkles like icing sugar on candy floss.
