Paul McCartney released a new song, “Get Enough,” as the calendar turned to 2019 at 12 a.m. Eastern time. The track is a new recording, not included on his most recent studio album, Egypt Station, which arrived on Sept. 7. Listen to it below.

2018 featured a burst of activity from McCartney with a series of well-coordinated events to herald the release of his studio album, including such headline-grabbing events as club appearances in the Beatles birthplace of Liverpool, and private concerts at the Abbey Road recording studio and even New York’s Grand Central Station.

Perhaps none was more memorable than his onstage reunion with Ringo Starr on Dec. 16 at London’s O2 Arena.

While McCartney is on hiatus of his 2018-2019 Freshen Up tour, he shows no signs of slowing down.

    I Dig Paul McCartney because he is the smartest man in the world. Still innocent. Appears as though he’s never sinned and he’s prolific.

    The incongruence is that he is 70ish and still singing like he’s 17. Please Paul, you’re not a teenager any more. All of us older folks will still buy your music if it’s relevant, e.g. all you need is love. Yeah. Love is all you need.

      70-ish? More like 80-ish.

      It’s not a bad song actually, but the auto tune bit makes it a holy mess.

    I loved McCartney’s music for 4 decades. Now it’s just sad.

    I’m a little surprised that Paul McCartney is apparently using an Auto Tune machine for the first minutes here, to sing into, in this new track. It starts out rather dragging and dreary, and nothing really like his previous known style, then finally in the last minute, we hear his usual backing familiar vocals coming in as the final verse.

    It’s just a fun song – people should stop the hand wringing.

    Paul also accurately predicted this himself in interviews this fall stating he had a song with more than the acceptable amount of auto tune that people would be divided on

    What we as fans love about Paul is when he takes chances and doesn’t play it safe

    Or at least I do

    He used auto-tune quite a bit on “Good Evening New York City” back in 2009. (There were official denials about this, but just listen to it – it’s obvious.) That was just to stay in tune, rather than to create the effects on this song. I don’t really like these effects, but I find it less troubling than using it to patch up live recordings. On Get Enough I think Paul is just experimenting, which he has always done. The only thing is that his experiments were once world-leading. Hard to maintain that over 50+ years.
