Paul McCartney, a British legendary musician and former Beatles member, has returned with the much-anticipated new album "EGYPT STATION" to invite fans to start a music tour of Paul McCartney through Egypt.
The title of EGYPT STATION comes from McCartney's own painting, which has been released since the release of McCartney's top international album, New, in 2013. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, London and Sussex and was produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters), and Ryan Tedder, the singer of One Republic, joined in the production of one of the songs. Before the release of the album, two "double A-sided" tracks "I Don't Know" and "Come On To Me" were released.
Paul mentioned that the album began with the first song, and each capital looked like an independent platform, an indispensable step towards the end. The song revolves around the idea that Egypt is a dreamlike place for him, from which all the musical inspiration spreads. The combination of 16 songs conveys a unique traveling atmosphere in which the traces of the times are diluted by music, which carries the audience unknowingly to the next destination.
From "Opening Station" at the beginning of the album to "Station II" at the end of the two pure music, each song can feel Paul capturing that place or moment, and then lead the audience seamlessly to the next destination. The journey's sites include an unplugged meditation experience of "Happy With You" enjoying the good times of the moment; the eternal hymn People Want Peace with Paul McCatney's epochal and melodic representations; and "Despite Repeated Warnings," an epic movement that encompasses Paul's classic past in seven minutes.
EGYPT STATION is a kaleidoscopic journey, guided by Paul McCatney's unique melodies and lyrics, through numerous music sites and times, and ultimately, firmly rooted here and now.
