Paul McCartney has treated fans to a belated holiday season gift. The legendary British rocker has released a surprise non-album single “Get Enough.”
The 18-time Grammy winner quietly debuted the new song on Jan. 1 via YouTube along with extending best wishes to fans for a happy and peaceful 2019, which the ex-Beatle posted via his official Paul McCartney website. “Get Enough” is a follow up to Macca's anti-bullying single “Who Cares,” which was released last month from his chart-topping 2018 studio album Egypt Station.
“Get Enough” was co-written by Macca along with Ryan Tedder, who also acted as co-producer on the song along with Zach Skelton and McCartney. Tedder previously produced and co-penned two tracks on Egypt Station, including the album's second single “Fuh You” and the track “Nothing for Free.”
Sir Paul opens the plaintive love ballad alone on piano. Accompanying himself with spacious chords, the “Band on the Run” hitmaker takes a walk down memory lane with the lead vocals gradually receiving an auto-tuned electronic layering effect as he sings, “It was a time when we walked by the docks/ I told you/I need you all of my life.”
“I hope everyone has a really brilliant New Year,” writes the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer in his holiday message. “With all the fab things they’ve hoped for coming true.”
McCartney will be back on the road with his Freshen Up Tour beginning on March 20 in Santiago, Chile, at National Stadium. Fans in the U.S. can look forward to the iconic pop-rocker when he returns for a spring romp, which kicks off May 23 in New Orleans at Smoothie King Arena.
