Paul McCartney is set to release a new album of covers on February 7th. The as-yet untitled record will feature versions of Tin Pan Alley songs McCartney first heard as a boy. With guest appearances by Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, the album will also include two new compositions from the ex-Beatle.
In keeping with the Great American Songbook theme of the project, McCartney will be accompanied by Diana Krall’s band. For the first time in his recording career, he will not play an instrument and will only sing.
