    Sometimes these things take time...or as a certain Beatle once said: „Time Takes Time“.
    Elton John fans had to wait since 1992 for another rarities set...

    If the new album were to be titled McCartney VIII, he could also revive Club Sandwich... :magoo:

    Ahh, Beatles VI ...my first Beatles vinyl purchase ever. Matter of fact the first time I ever bought vinyl was that album along with Dean Martin's "My Woman My Woman My Wife" at the same time.
    Seems so long ago.

    I'm glad you noticed the deeper, subtler gag. I didn't until I read this :)

    Yeah, I thought it was right up there with "a born lever-puller"... [high praise, indeed, for any pun!] :edthumbs:

    Anyone done a thorough dive on the ASCAP site recently? I used to check it pretty regularly, but they redid the site a few years ago and I found it much more cumbersome to explore...

    Anyway, a sharp-eyed lady PM'd me, noting that she wasn't familiar with "Let Myself Down" or "Till You Drop" … and neither am I! The latter one, in particular, seems to have a very high "work number" which might indicate it's newly copyrighted (?). Maybe @cb70 can chime in and help us figure out some of the new songs in advance?

    @cb70 spotted "Let Myself Down" three years ago.

    He spotted "Till We Drop" in February. Perhaps it has been renamed.

    Both titles seem, and this is a stretch, like they could work for the plot to High in the Clouds.

    Hmm, didn’t netflix acquire the rights to that about a year ago or so? And I remember a pic floating round of Paul in the studio with Lady Gaga who was supposed to be supplying one of the voices and singing a few tracks as well. Don't get me wrong as excited as I would be for that (and the broadway musical...sheesh when does this guy sleep?!) I do hope this doesn’t wind up being what it is and is indeed a proper studio album

    “Proper studio album”*? Not sure exactly what that entails. This will be McCartney III, completely written, produced and performed by Paul alone. Dec 11, 2020.

    *to me, that’s *not* a proper studio album, but I’ll happily purchase it!

    All indications point to this being a regular studio album.

    I'm a big supporter of the rumor that a McCartney III project is coming. It's not my rumor, but I'm deeply hopeful.

    The McCartney projects on the back burner are (let's see if I can remember them all)

    High in the Clouds
    It's a Wonderful Life
    Cavern Club (movie)
    Guitar Concerto
    A collection of sound checks

    So when a title or something seems like it might fit into one of those slots I shout it out.
    We all go into detective mode when there's a hint of a McCartney project.

    Just on this page alone there's someone digging into the ASCAP archives and someone else circling a videographer in a blurry picture. This is the fun stuff for me - and most Beatles fans, from the very beginning. Looking for clues and whatnot.
