Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides - the plaintive ballad ´I Don’t Know´ and a raucous stomper ´Come On To Me´ - Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make... ´Egypt Station´ starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”

True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station ’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals ´Station I´ and ´Station II´, each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (´Happy With You´), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (´People Want Peace´), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos (´Despite Repeated Warnings´). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now - with Paul’s singular unmistakeable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.

"Come on to Me" will make it´s national debut this weekend on Beatle Brunch where it will close out the show. Beatle Brunch Club members have the opportunity to hear the show a day early by joining the club, as the shows are made available to members on Saturday morning at midnight. Also, check "Brunch Bytes" to hear a preview of the songs now.
