Paul McCartney Announces McCartney III  50 Years After McCartney

50 years after releasing his first solo album on which he played all of the instruments, wrote all of the songs (including "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Every Night" and "The Lovely Linda") and self-engineered, Sir Paul returns with McCartneyIII. In 1980 he released his second solo album McCartney II.

The album will be released December 11th on Capitol Records "... across digital platforms, on CD, and on LP manufactured by Third Man Pressing. Vinyl configurations will range from standard 180g to a Third Man Edition of 3,000 hand-numbered red vinyl copies, a ‘333’ Edition sold only via Third Man Records online store and limited to 333 copies on yellow-with-black-dots vinyl created using 33 recycled vinyl copies of McCartney and McCartney II, a U.S. indie retail exclusive pressing of 4,000 hand-numbered white vinyl LPs, and more.

I've been a McCartney fan since I saw a news segment on a Walter Cronkite's CBS News of a new band that was some big deal in England. And, then heard them on my 6-transistor radio that on some nights could pick up NYC stations 1000 miles away that had early Beatles releases.

I own a great deal of his solo and Wings releases and all of the Beatles (in every format, including the Apple USB and a EMI Blue Box).

BUT, I have to hear this one first. At Paul's age, lets be honest, his voice is a tad ragged. I'm only 8 years younger than him and I know my speaking voice is equally ragged.

Can't wait to hear it. Stream it. And I hope LOVE it. But, I'm going wait on buying this one.

show (9:00 PM CST). As a 10-year old, I was "easy", but it was pretty much instant captivation.

Fully expecting to be disappointed/underwhelmed. But what the heck, any album may be his last, and I've never owned a white colored "vinyl". You don't have to love an album to be glad you have it.
