Sir Paul McCartney‘s 17th solo album, Egypt Station, released September 7th, is a retrospective look back at the long journey of life. Each song represents a different “station” that McCartney experienced through his life. Some songs, like “I Don’t Know” show the softer emotions Macca is feeling. However, do not think this album is a sad and soft lullaby tribute to a tremendous career. Rather, Macca came hot off his 76th birthday earlier this Summer with some edgy lyrics in his released singles, “Fuh You,” and “Come On To Me.”
In total, Egypt Station is full of classic light-hearted, lusty melodies that plead for peace and scream classic McCartney.
Sir Paul McCartney also received the Companion of Honour for services of Music on May 4th. The Queen presented the award to him at Buckingham Palace. Paul McCartney said about the award,
I’m very happy about this huge honour, and with the news coming on my birthday weekend and Father’s Day, it makes it colossal!
We couldn’t imagine a better reception of his 17th solo album, and couldn’t imagine a better album either.
