Paul McCartney’s about to release an album of new material soon. I’ve been a fan since I was wee, and though his output has, put diplomatically, varied in quality, I can’t help but be excited by the idea of new music. This is the new single, appropriately called New. It sounds really good, in my humble opinion; cheerful and sprightly, and McCartney’s voice is still a fine instrument, if a tad more strained these days. I see a lot of people on the Internet moaning about New for some reason, but you know, fuck ’em.
