New McCartney song: In The Blink of An Eye

In The Blink of An Eye is the title of a new song Paul McCartney has written for the animated movie Ethel & Ernest. The film, which is based on the 1998 storybook by Raymond Briggs, had his premiere today at the London Film Festival and will be broadcasted by the BBC later this year.

"I knew that Paul McCartney was a big animation fan and I knew that Raymond Briggs's book Fungus the Bogeyman had influenced Paul's 1980s track Bogey Music," director Roger Mainwood told British newspaper The Telegraph. "So I asked Raymond if he might write a letter to Paul to see if he was interested in composing a track for Ethel and Ernest, which he did on Fungus the Bogeyman headed paper!"

"It obviously worked and we were thrilled when Paul said he was interested," he continued.  "We met up and he produced a CD which included a track called Mum and Dad theme.  This eventually became In the Blink of An Eye which we have used in the film."

In The Blink of An Eye brings a renewed collaboration with Carl Davis, who worked with McCartney on his first classical score, the 1991 Liverpool Oratorio. For the new song Davis conducted the string arrangements, performed by the Chambre of Orchestre of London.

The new song plays over the end credits of the movie.
