New Secret McCartney Show Announced

Paul McCartney has announced another secret gig, tomorrow June 26, somewhere in Liverpool. Sir Paul did this announcement at the end of the live Q&A session he had on Facebook earlier today. The secret show will be the third one in his promotion tour for his upcoming album Egypt Station. 

From his former school, the current LIPA Institute in Liverpool, the ex-Beatle took the afternoon to answer questions that had been send it by fans via Facebook and from fans in the audience. He talked several times about his new album that will be released in September. He told the audience he deliberately chose to make a concept album, in the style that for example Pink Floyd could. According to him, the current LPs of today's top acts are mainly a collection of commercial singles; a concept where, in his own words, it is difficult to compete with.

The idea for the concept album began with the title of the painting he made in the 1990s, Egypt Station. From there the concept has been developed and thus, for example, the design and art work of the album is also part of the overall concept. The album itself is also becoming increasingly clear: It starts with station sounds, followed by a choir, after which the first song starts. The album ends with the sounds of a train station as well. McCartney also discussed one of the new tracks, Confidante, which he described as "written to my guitar".

The Q&A ended with McCartney’s announcement of a new surprise show, the next day somewhere in Liverpool. This will be the third ‘secret event’ in a row to promote the new album. The first one was in June, where he performed at the Liverpool Philharmonic Pub, and yesterday he played a surprise gig at Abbey Road Studios in London. Egypt Station is set to be released on 7th September.
