Paul McCartney has announced a new podcast titled ‘McCartney: A Life In Lyrics’. Each episode will see the artist focusing on a single song from his work in the Beatles and Wings as well as his solo career, and will share the stories behind some of his best-known songs. Included in the first season of the podcast series include ‘Eleanor Rigby’, ‘Let It Be’ and ‘Live and Let Die’ among others.  Said McCartney: “It was like going back to an old snapshot album, looking back on work I haven’t thought much about for quite a few years.”

The series will also allow listeners to sit in on conversations between McCartney and poet Paul Muldoon, who wrote the foreword to McCartney’s bestselling book, The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present.  Muldoon in the prologue episode: “When we listened back to the tapes, we realized there was something very special happening in these conversations. It was McCartney unfiltered.”

‘McCartney: A Life In Lyrics’ is set for release on September 20, 2023, with a new episode coming out every week. Season 1 will feature 12 episodes, and Season 2 will follow with an additional 12 episodes set for release in February of 2024.
