Surprise song from McCartney
|Get Enough – a new song from Paul|
As we entered the New Year, Paul McCartney surprised us by releasing a new song on various streaming services, including Spotify and YouTube Music.
It has been receiving mixed feelings from fans, but it still grown on you the more you hear it. Much of the controversy stems from McCartney employing the “Cher effect”, which is extreme use of the auto-tune tool, as pioneered by Cher in her 1998 song “Believe”. McCartney starts singing without the effect, but it is used more and more as the song progresses. The song then takes a new, orchestral direction before it ends.
The song comes from the recording sessions for “Egypt Station” and is co-composed with Ryan Tedder, who also acted as co-producer together with Zach Skelton and Paul himself.
It’s possibly slated for the DeLuxe boxed set of “Egypt Station” which was originally going to be available in October 2018, but which has been postponed. Here is the song, from YouTube Music:
