    First impression after listening to the complete song:
    Nice arrangement and catchy melody. Imagine "Hope For The Future" sung with the voice heard on the beginning of "Early Days". I really hope that McCartney's vocals on the next album won't be another step down from "New".

    In the blink of an eye, many songs have been sung, many lives have gone by..

    We will not give up, we will hold on to love, with no reason to cry...

    After a few listens, I'm very glad Paul's vocals sound so natural and in a key that suits his voice now. No doubletrack vocals or anything to change the sound of his natural voice such as on songs like on All Day or I Can Bet. I cannot wait to get a download of the full version so I can hear the other lyrics. Maybe we can get a version stripped of all the orchestral arrangements?

    Also, the opening parts sort of sound like "I Do" from Driving Rain to me. Any other people who can recognize chords by ear can confirm this?

    One of my favorites by any means but I like it and I listen to it every time I play Driving Rain, Freedom single or Back In The U.S.

    Well guys, thanks for all your help tonight...

    I've got to get to work at 7am tomorrow so I hope I can listen to it on my way[to work]!

    I'll give more thoughts once I hear the whole thing, but I'm impressed so far

    If you have iTunes, change your country (bottom of home page) to U.K., then search and you can hear a 90-second clip.

    Yeah, I'm away from home and my iPad and iPhone don't give me a menu to change countries. I have done it many times with my Computer at home though. No luck with my apple devices

    This is as "2016 Paul McCartney soundtrack song" as you can get. :)

    It's "We All Stand Together", "Hope For the Future" and "(I Want To) Come Home" in a blender.

    And that may not be a bad thing.

    He is making an honest presentation of his voice, which does, unfortunately, sound like it recently has (but I'll take it).

    Raymond Briggs, Camilla Deakin, and myself met up with Paul McCartney in his Soho office on May 14th 2014. I had suggested to Raymond that he might write a letter to Paul to see if he was interested in composing a song for our Ethel and Ernest film. Raymond’s book ‘Fungus the Bogeyman’ had influenced Paul’s track Bogey Music on his 1980 album McCartney II. So that connection, and Paul’s well known love of animation, encouraged us to believe that he might be interested. We were thrilled when he said he was.

    At the meeting he produced a CD of some music that he had been working on. One track was entitled Mum and Dad. This track eventually became In The Blink Of An Eye which we have used over the end credits. Raymond and Paul found many connections as they chatted. They had both been grammar school boys, and their fathers were both auxiliary firemen in World War 2. We talked about Paul’s father being a band leader, and how he composed a piece of music that Paul later recorded. The track is called ‘Walking in the Park with Eloise’ and we suggested to him that it would be really nice to have it in the film.

    We had a chat about the style of Ethel and Ernest. I said it would be hand drawn animation but there would be 3D elements in it for vehicles, planes, and the mangle that Ethel uses for washing. We showed him some of the artwork for the film. He stopped at a picture of the

    mangle in the scullery and recalled how he and his brother used to try and feed old 78rpm records through the rollers to see if they could get them through without breaking. He laughed and added, “we couldn’t!”.

    Fast forward two years and as we neared completion of the film we made contact with Paul’s office again. By this time Carl Davis was on board and by coincidence rather than design this proved to be an excellent opportunity to revive a collaboration that had begun twenty five years previously. In 1991 the first performance of Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Oratorio was conducted by Carl Davis in Liverpool Cathedral. Carl and Paul had collaborated on the oratorio to celebrate the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s 150th anniversary. Now in 2016 Paul and Carl met up again to work on the string arrangement of the Mum and Dad theme. Paul was touring in 2016, playing to sold out stadiums in the US and Europe, but in July he had a small window in his busy schedule. He wrote and performed some lyrics, recording them at his Hog Hill Mill studio in Sussex. The string arrangement was conducted by Carl and performed by the Chamber Orchestra of London. It was recorded at Angel studios under the musical direction of Chris Egan.

    The Mum and Dad theme was composed in 2013 , at first for a classical project that Paul worked and still works on. This is the instrumental part of the song. This year , Paul wrote the chorus and used a fragment of an old unreleased song from the eighties called kiss me now for the verses . So Kiss me now was used for Hope for the future and for a blink of a eye . Strange , because the original complete song was pretty good in its original condition If you take the verses of blink , add the bridge of hope for the future and imagine a chorus with the the words kiss me now, you have the song in its original form from 1984, produced by George Martin. And the song is better than the 2 new songs ... Mystery

    PS : for the new album, Paul is working hard on it . All the songs will be finished for late november , and the mixing will occur in January and february , with some orchestra sessions planned late december . 26 songs are or will be finished for the project . No title yet, no date too . No more infos for the flowers box set, sorry, except that that we will have the 5 songs ( the 4 plus so like candy ) produced by Elvis costello from the 1988 Jan Feb sessions, so in their original rough forms , which are said to be very interesting
