Paul McCartney Never Retiring: 'I'd Do This for Nothing'
Despite being in his '70s, Sir Paul McCartney isn't planning on stopping any time soon. As the music icon recently stressed, retiring isn't even a possibility. During a chat with XRT, McCartney explained that making music is simply what he does, and not something he can just retire from. "For me, the main thing is I love making music so much," 71-year-old former Beatle said. "If I retired, I'd still do exactly what I do. So I may as well not retire. Retire from what? I'd do this for nothing." Sir McCartney recently premiered a new song appropriately titled "New." As the title track of upcoming "Kisses on the Bottom" follow-up, the tune announced the October 15 official US release date through Hear Music. The album was recorded with several notable collaborators, including Ethan Johns, Paul Epworth (Adele), Mark Ronson and Giles Martin, the son of classic Beatles producer George Martin. "New" info should surface soon; in the meantime, check out the "New" track below. "The record is very varied. I worked with four producers and each of them brought something different," the bassist/singer told BBC. "Mark's work with Amy [Winehouse] was sensational, so I knew he'd be good. He knows his music, he knows what he likes and the two of us together took the song and tried to put the maximum vibe into it."
