    I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying your posts, more than all of the magazine reviews so far put together. My excitement for this release couldn’t be topped by anything else, you have described it so vividly and it sounds wonderful.

    I'm wondering if there will be more songs than what's on the album. Paul's pretty good at writing much more and leaving stuff off the album for singles, deluxe editions, etc.

    Why not? David Bowie didn’t want it anymore and deleted it from later editions of „Never Let Me Down“...

    I have more bad ones than good ones. It's not as dreamy of a job as one would think.

    Maybe I'm naive, but my guess is that McCartney III will be its own entity (no b-sides or future bonus tracks/deluxe edition), and that any songs Paul has left from 2020 either demos, full recordings or just compositions, he's saving for his next album.

    My hope is that he goes into the studio with his touring band (or just other musicians) and knocks out a record with Rick Rubin or something like that. Something produced, but not THAT produced. Something in between McCartney III and Egypt Station.

    Maybe it will be a Paul and Taylor duets album. Actually, I think a song of Paul's with her treatment probably wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Since Covid isn't going away too soon, I could see a sort of parallel to Ram as the next thing. Grab a couple people to play and record. How many members are in his current band? I'm sure they need some kind of work right now.

    My bet is most will be kept as demos for a future studio album.

    I have come to hate the bonus edition thing... I don't mind paying more for an expanded edition with bonus tracks, up front on release day. But having to come back 6 to 12 months later & buy it again just for the extra tracks. That's what McCartney did with Egypt Station, i just bought the regular Egypt on release and added the 6 or 7 bonus tracks free off youtube.

    By contrast as an example, when the Who WHO 2019 was released last year , you could simply buy the 4 bonus tracks on the expanded edition. Although they too have just released , a year later, a new bonus edition with 9 live bonus tracks...but at least they are unrelated to the studio cuts.

    If history repeats itself, then just wait 3 to 12 months & McCartney will allow his people, to gouge the fans once again, forcing them to buy again for 3 or 4 bonus tracks.

    I think Paul should absolutely write a song for Taylor Swift to sing. That would be cool. A duets record with her, eh, I'll pass.

    Personally I'd love for Paul to have Beck as a guest on a song/album.

    I just think they could make a real magical track or two together--and both have worked with Greg Kurstin.

    Thanks for another great up-date. I particularly noticed your description of Husbands and wife’s as “gothic blues”. Paul mentioned being inspired by Leadbelly for that song so it makes sense

    I don't like that either. However, Paul has ALWAYS had tracks not on the official album whether it was a b-side, single, etc. I try not to get into the deluxe things with Paul as he takes up a huge chunk of my shelf space already. I still like to hear the extra stuff whether I have a physical copy or not. But I do understand the dilemma for those that feel the need to own it on a physical format.

    If I read all the previous reviews, the album might sound more like "Chaos And Creation ... than anything else, or am I completely wrong?
