Below, stream the title cut, which channels the sunny piano pop spirit of much of Sir Paul's classic '60s work. It was produced by Ronson. In a statement about the song, Macca said, "We can do what we want, we can live as we choose."
Although the album only features 12 songs, the iTunes pre-order lists 14 tracks, meaning that there likely a couple of digital bonus cuts.
