Paul McCartney has released a brand new track entitled Get Enough. The song, which the legendary Beatle co-wrote and produced with Zach Skelton and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, arrives less than four months after his highly-acclaimed 17th solo album, Egypt Station. You can hear it below.
Get Enough opens as a straightforward pop tune, with McCartney meditating on melancholy memories (“Do you remember the lights on the shore?”). Latterly, however, the arrangement and production gradually shift, weaving in acoustic guitars, grandiose chord changes, a barely audible spoken word passage and thick vocal processing that has already been drawing comparisons with artists as diverse as Bon Iver and Kanye West.
McCartney played bass guitar, piano, acoustic guitar, harpsichord, synthesizer and synth-bass on the intriguing three-minute cut. Tedder is credited with programming and background vocals, and Skelton with editing and programming.
Egypt Station, which followed 2013’s New, provided McCartney with his first No. 1 record in the U.S. since 1982’s Tug of War. Both Tedder and Skelton worked on the album, co-producing the single ‘Fuh You’ and the bonus track ‘Nothing for Free’. Greg Kurstin co-produced the remaining songs.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, McCartney recently issued an Emma Stone-starring video for another of the album’s key songs, ‘Who Cares,’ and performed a series of UK and European dates as part of his on-going ‘Freshen Up’ tour. The tour’s North American leg resumes on 23 May in New Orleans, Louisiana and currently wraps on 13 July in Los Angeles, California.

“I hope everyone has a really brilliant New Year, with all the fab things they’ve hoped for coming true,” McCartney said in a New Year’s greeting to his fans. “And I hope things work out on all the political fronts — that we get more peace than ever, people look after each other and we have a good time!”
