Paul McCartney and Youth have made selected tracks from the pair’s forthcoming album release, ‘Electric Arguments’ available for free streaming playback online.
PaulMcCartney.com launched the new official website for the collaboration between the artists, who work together under the name of ‘The Fireman’.
Visit www.thefiremanmusic.com where you can hear the new tracks ‘Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight’ and ‘Sing The Changes’ in full and watch previously unreleased video footage of McCartney & Youth recording the album and designing the artwork for the project.
The pair last worked together on a release from The Fireman ten years ago. They released ‘Rushes’ in 1998 and first album, ‘Strawberries Oceans Ships Forest’, was introduced in 1993,
The eclectic thirteen track album ‘Electric Arguments’ will be released on November 24 in the UK and November 25 in the US, and is already winning positive praise from music critics. Each track was written and recorded in the space of one day. Digital single ‘Sing The Changes’ is already available for purchase from iTunes and 7 Digital.
Website subscribers can expect to be kept up to date with all the latest information on The Fireman along with official Paul McCartney newsletters.
The ex-Beatle is known to be a Mac user (he has at least one in his studio) who handed out iPods to his crew after one extensive US tour as a gift, and has himself even starred in an iPod ad with Apple. McCartney continues to explore the online opportunity with his own material, and the move to make music available for preview online reinforces just how far music has come in terms of embracing the opportunity of the Web.
One thing’s for sure, though, McCartney’s move is bound to spark yet more speculation as to when, just when, music from The Beatles will be made legitimately available online.
