Paul McCartney Just Wants to "Fuh You" on New Song
It's "sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song"
Published Aug 15, 2018Paul McCartney has been rolling out his upcoming album Egypt Station with singles like "I Don't Know" and "Come on to Me," but his latest ditty is a slightly dirtier one.
Titled "Fuh You," the track was made with pop producer Ryan Tedder, an outlier on the otherwise Greg Kurstin-produced album.
As the title implies, it's a love song, "but a raunchy love song."
It's an upbeat, innocent sounding number until you realize that, yup, he's definitely singing, "I just want to fuh you."
In a statement about the new song, McCartney said the following:
With this one I was in the studio with Ryan Tedder whereas the rest of the album has been made with Greg Kurstin.... We were just thinking of ideas and little pieces of melody and chords and the song just came together bit by bit. And then I would try and make some kind of sense of the story. So it was like, "Come on, baby, now. Talk about yourself. Tell the truth, let me get to know you," and basically I wanna know how you feel, you make me wanna go out and steal. I just want it for you. So that was the basic idea and it developed from there.... Sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song. There you go—fuh you.
Egypt Station is out September 7 via Capitol Records.
