Paul McCartney has revealed details of his 2013 world tour, to be titled "Out There!".

He's also working on a brand new album, to follow his 2012 cover record "Kisses On The Bottom."

The songwriting maverick has only announced two tour dates in Poland and Austria for late June, but promises that more international appearances will be announced in the coming weeks.

"The tour will see Paul and his band travel the world throughout the year, even visiting some places they've never been before," said a statement on Paul's website where tickets will be available soon.

If you're a McCartney fan and plan to head to your nearest music shop for Record Store Day this year, look out for his exclusive release of "Maybe I'm Amazed," a 12" vinyl of a 1976 Wings song which was originally released as a radio promo.

In other McCartney news, he was reportedly ignored by train passengers when he started performing Beatles songs on public transport because they thought he was an everyday busker.

He was apparently travelling with his wife in New Orleans when he broke into a medley of Beatles hits, but the passengers took little notice, according to NME.

    I saw him in 2009 and he played for 3 straight hours. By far the best value for money at a concert I've ever experienced.
    I wanted to see him in 2011, but it was waaayyy to expensive. maybe this time...
    Please come to Austin. Please. Why do Dallas and Houston get all of the love...please austin...
    Saw him two nights in a row last year, best nights of my life. Hope he comes back.
    No question the man still has it, but when a concert ticket comes in just under the price of a new guitar, new guitar wins.
