Paul McCartney has called on musicians including Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke to work with him on a collaboration, but worries that Yorke won't be interested. In a new interview with NME the Beatles singer said he's love to work with others including Blur's Damon Albarn, partly prompted by his daughter Stella McCartney who is a fan of them. "My daughter Stella is very keen. She's got a project, she keeps saying to me, 'Ring Thom and just go into the studio and just see what you come out with … [but] I'm a bit sort of paranoid to just ring him up. 'Hey Thom, it's Paul here. What do you fancy, what are you doing? Do you fancy writing something?' Just in case he says, 'Er, actually I'm busy'." But there is one major artist who McCartney is verst seriously considering working with. "There were big rumours a couple of years ago about me and Bob Dylan writing together, and I've still got that at the back of my mind. I would like to do it," he says. McCartney's new album titled "New" will be out on October 14, and features production from the likes of Mark Ronson and Adele producer Paul Epworth.

    What a humble guy, worried Thom would be too busy for one of musics greatest icons. Three cheers for Paul, Hip Hip....
    "I'm a bit sort of paranoid to just ring him up"... I see what you did there Paul.
    It wouldn't work. Paul McCartney's a poppy, hook-driven writer, and Thom, when he's not just using lyrics for the sake of atmosphere, is in an entirely different league. That's not to say he's above Paul, but I feel like when they write songs, they've got two different goals in mind.

    To be honest I think Paul would hold Thom back, all of his music lately has been quite bad. Kind of sad, they would be great together if McCartney wasn't writing such bland stuff nowadays
    What a bunch of insignificant crap. This has to be one of the worst news articles to date. This is getting as bad as facebook. Tomorrows article- PAUL MCCARTNY PONDERS EATING A SANDWICH FOR LUNCH, BUT THE BIG QUESTION, WHAT KIND OF SANDWICH?
