YouTube Original special starts at 8 pm ET
Paul McCartney is celebrating the release of his new album, Egypt Station, by performing live on his YouTube channel on Friday, September 7th at 8 pm ET. The concert is part of a YouTube Original special and will feature songs from the new album as well as classics from the Beatles, Wings and his solo work.
Sharing a title with one of McCartney’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 just released as double A-sides–plaintive ballad “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper “Come On To Me” — Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).
Egypt Station will be available on a variety of configurations including limited edition Concertina CD and vinyl packaging as well as Super Deluxe limited edition hand number box set featuring bonus tracks. The album’s 16 tracks combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe.
Earlier this week, McCartney announced the first five dates to his Freshen Up 2019 Tour. These dates will mark McCartney’s first series of Stateside concerts since the One On One Tour that played to some two million fans around the world during 2016 and 2017. More will be announced soon.
