140g Double Vinyl, single jacket with 16 tracks (14 songs + 2 instrumentals).

Paul McCartney invites you on a musical journey to Egypt Station, estimated time of arrival September 7, 2018 by way of Capitol Records. Sharing a title with one of Pauls own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides--plaintive ballad I Dont Know and raucous stomper Come On To MeEgypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Of the forthcoming albums enigmatic title, Paul says, I liked the words Egypt Station. It reminded me of the album albums we used to make.., Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.

True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Stations 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals Station I and Station II, each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (Happy With You), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (People Want Peace), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Pauls previous combos (Despite Repeated Warnings). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now--with Pauls singular unmistakable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.
