During an appearance on BBC 6 Music, The Beatles legend Paul McCartney talked about the ongoing pandemic, his upcoming new album "McCartney III," and more.
"McCartney III" is due this December, you can check it out here via Amazon.
When the interviewer said, "This is 'McCartney III,' so let's do a bit of context - if this is maybe the third part of the trilogy. 'McCartney I' in 1970 - that was kind of the start of the lo-fi-DIY-play-and-produce-everything-yourself. Have you always had a soft spot for that record?
"Oh, yeah. It happened just because I was spending a bit of time at home because, suddenly, I wasn't in The Beatles anymore.
"So you're a bit of a loose end, to say the least. But I had all my stuff - I had a drum kit, I had my bass, I had my guitar, had an amp, I got hold of a four-track recorder from EMI, which is the same machine that we'd used with The Beatles.
"So I just went real-lo-fi, just plugged the microphone straight into the back - didn't have a mixing desk - and made some music. That was it!"
