After about a week of heightened curiosity and speculation and a series of cryptic social media posts, the word is out: Sir Paul McCartney will premiere two new singles, “I Don’t Know” and “Come On To Me,” on Wednesday, June 20.
Just last week, Macca — who celebrated his 76th birthday on Monday — played an intimate gig at a pub in Liverpool, where he and his band debuted “Come On To Me,” a song from his upcoming studio album on Capitol Records.
Of the two new songs, per a press release:
The first tastes of Paul’s brand new studio album due out later this year on Capitol Records, the two A-sides are polar opposites: “I Don’t Know” being a plaintive, soul-soothing ballad as only Paul can deliver, and “Come On To Me” a raucous stomper that fans that first spark of chemistry into a rocking blaze.
Details about the LP itself have yet to be fully announced, but we do know it will be released in the fall.
