In these trying, confusing times, music can be a healer — of the mind, the spirit and our sensibilities, especially as we try to navigate the difficulties of existing amid the coronavirus pandemic. In his latest e-mail newsletter to fans, Sir Paul McCartney sent along a playlist of songs from throughout his repertoire “inspired by home, family and kindness,” precisely the type of music we need right now.
Along with the playlist, Paul McCartney sent this message along as well:
Hello, spring! Along with the season, this has been a month of changes for many of us around the world.
As we are all spending more time at home, this month’s ‘Sticking Out My Back Pocket’ playlist is filled with songs inspired by home, family and kindness. Listen to it HERE! and we hope it brings you some comfort as we find ourselves in “times of trouble”.
Looking for more listening recommendations? Paul chatted to Alan Alda on the Clear and Vivid podcast at the beginning of the month, sharing his songwriting process and a few stories from his career so far. Tune in HERE!
