Paul McCartney will release a new album in February. According to, the album will feature guest spots from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.

The album will feature two new tracks as well as McCartney's renditions of classics that inspired him as a young writer. He said the sessions were spontaneous and "kind of organic, which then reminded me of the way we'd work with The Beatles.

"We'd bring a song in, kick it around, when we found a way to do it we'd say Okay, let's do a take now' and by the time everyone kind of had an idea of what they were doing, we'd learnt the song. So that's what we did, we did the take live in the studio."

As for the songs, McCartney said: "It was important for me to keep away from the more obvious song choices so, many of the classic standards will be unfamiliar to some people. I hope they are in for a pleasant surprise."

Thanks for the report to Andrew Vaughan,
