Rumor: New Macca Single Premiers 8/29/13

Postby jgkojak » Wed Aug 28, 2013 12:02 pm

Rumor on the Hoffman site is that Spanish (Spain) radio is reporting a new macca single for 8/29 (Thursday) -

MPL has been tweeting all day - "castle", "York", "born","fangled".... which of course all begin with NEW!

I've just logged in to this site to say that Macca has been going odd on Twitter over the last 24 hours. I finally got the connection with his latest tweet "lyweds".

Yes, I think he is definitely about to spring something "new" on us!

Got the song a bit ago, may as well use that link, it works :) Yep, kinda short but it is a single, lots of hooks and riffs that is trademark of Paul and yes, very Penny Lanish. If this is any indication which a single usually is, this is going to be a fantastic album.

My shot at the lyrics-

NEW
Paul McCartney
Don't look at me
Its way too soon to see
What's gonna be
Don't look at me

All my life
I never knew what i could be
What I could do
When we were new

You came along and
made my life a song
my lucky day you came along
just in time
while I searching for a ride(?)
You came along
when we were new

We can do what we want we can live as we choose
See there's no guarantee we got nothing to lose

Don't look at me
I can't deny the truth it's great to see
Don't look at me
All my life
I never knew what I could do
What I could be if we were new
Everyone's talkin' 'bout the President
We all chip in for a bag of cement

My Review of "NEW"

I actually thought I'd have to fight and scam my way into hearing this song in the next 48 hrs, so its refreshing to get such an early peek.

Initial reactions:
This is Macca's best lead single since The World Tonight, possibly since My Brave Face. It's a truly ageless/wonderful piece that could have come out at any time in Macca's career (including on Revolver). I love the Penny-Lane-style beat, the production touches (I'd like to see the production credits). It feels like a more pop version of Ever Present Past, which is a good thing.

Voice:
Paul seems to have discovered how to write around his vocal limitations - there are some nice double-tracked vocals in places and it really doesn't feel like many compromises have had to be made.

Prospects:
I really don't think we'll be hearing this next to Blurred Lines and Get Lucky, though it doesn't fit too badly with those songs. But if THIS is what the album has in store, I am thinking Paul has done something pretty remarkable. And is Brian Wilson on this song at the end?

:?

my initial reactions (not that anyone asked, but i'll throw them in :-D ) ?

nice song...kinda underwhelming, tho...

penny-lane-ish ? maybe...but i'm feeling that 'rehash-ish' is more like it...

not what i'd call a wicked strong start...more sort of middling...simply didn't strike me as very inventive...

the voice...hmmmm...seems weak...raspy...not very full...has that old person sound that some thought might've been done just to spiff up KOTB

lyrics ?? they simply didn't/haven't become memorable...even after a few listens...they're just sort of there...it's nice 'n all...but seems all sort of middle-of-the-record filler than screaming the THIS IS MY NEW STUFF note to the world...but that is just me

they did seem kinda...word-play-ful...maybe it'll take a few more spins to get a better feel...for the vibe to settle in...but i'm not humming it like i did so many others after first hearing them

listen...i fell in love with 'the world tonight' on near first listen...same for 'my brave face'...heck, same for 'dance tonight' which was far more pop infectious...

definately can see the throwback vibe some were trumpeting...glad ya'll are liking it though
lift up your head...and remember what your life is !
