Published Mar 26, 2017Beatles legend Paul McCartney reissued his 1989 album Flowers in the Dirt just a couple days ago (March 24), but the songwriter has now turned his focus back to the present by starting work on a new album with mega-producer Greg Kurstin.
Macca told BBC Radio 6 Music [via NME], "I'm making a new album which is great fun. I'm in the middle of that. I'm working with a producer I first worked with two years ago on a piece of music I'm doing for an animated film."
In regards to Kurstin, McCartney continued, "He went on to work with Beck and got Best Album of the Year with Beck. Then he went on to work with Adele and has just got Song of the Year, Record of the Year, with Adele, of course, and just got Producer of the Year. My only worry is, people are going to go, 'Oh there's Paul going with the flavour of the month.'"
There's currently no word as to when the new album is due out. When it arrives, it will be Sir Paul's first album since 2013's New.
