McCartney III track list
The full track list for McCartney III is now public, courtesy of Amazon. It wasn’t supposed to be announced until next week, but here it is. Amazon has since removed the listing, but once the cat’s out of the bag…
- Long Tailed Winter Bird
- Find My Way
- Pretty Boys
- Women and Wives
- Lavatory Lil’
- Deep Deep Feeling
- The Kiss of Venus
- Seize the Day
- Deep Down
- Winter Bird/When Winter Comes
So, its just 11 tracks, but perhaps there will be a DeLuxe edition with more songs after a while, judging by Paul’s release policy in recent years.
Meanwhile, another review has been posted, this time online. Gwen Ihnat has had a listen, and her review, titled “With McCartney III, Paul McCartney offers lessons from a legendary life” is posted at AvClub.com. Not too impressed, Ihnat writes that “a few of the new album’s tracks embody that was-probably-more-fun-to-play-than-it-is-to-listen-to quality, like the meandering, repetitive, and oddly similar “Deep Down” (nearly six minutes long) and “Deep Deep Feeling” (which features eight minutes of un-engaging relationship rambling, with an especially cruel fake ending around the seven-minute mark).”
Well, we guess that was only to expect, the two earlier self-titled “McCartney” albums were both rather mixed bags. Meanwhile, there are reports that the as yet unreleased strictly limited yellow vinyl edition (333 copies only) has changed hands over at ebay for rather astronomical figures before anybody has seen it. The new album is due out 11. December, a date which was previously reserved for the postponed 50th anniversary edition “Plastic Ono Band” album. So just like Paul got his way with the first “McCartney” album back in 1970, his release comes first.
Paul is also featured and cover boy in a new issue of the British magazine, Uncut.
