music news 25/08/2021

Paul McCartney is set to release a new book in October this year, named 'The Lyrics.'

The book will feature the newly discovered words McCartney wrote for an unrecorded Beatles song alongside 153 of his other works.

'The Lyrics' includes hand-written lyric sheets, unseen personal photographs, drafts, and drawings. Each song is accompanied by personal commentary from McCartney.

Those featuring include classics such as “Blackbird”, “Live and Let Die”, “Hey Jude”, “Band on the Run” and “Yesterday”.

“The one thing I’ve always managed to do, whether at home or on the road, is to write new songs. I know that some people, when they get to a certain age, like to go to a diary to recall day-to-day events from the past, but I have no such notebooks.

"What I do have are my songs, hundreds of them, which I’ve learned serve much the same purpose. And these songs span my entire life", he said.

The book will be published in two 480-page hardback volumes with a slipcase, and will cost you around $150.

It's set to be released on the 2nd of November.
