Paul McCartney - Egypt Station [Deluxe] (LP)

Egypt Station [Deluxe]
Not Currently Available
Sharing a title with one of Paul'€™s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013'€™s international chart-topping New. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides - plaintive ballad I Don'€™t Know and raucous stomper Come on to Me - Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Egypt Station'€™s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals Station I and Station II, each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (Happy With You), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (People Want Peace), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul's previous combos (Despite Repeated Warnings). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now - with Paul's singular unmistakable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.

This deluxe double-LP format is presented in a superb triple-gatefold sleeve.
