Sir Paul McCartney has said he hopes to have his latest studio album completed ‘within the next few months’ after his ‘Kisses On The Bottom‘ LP – a collection of original compositions and classic standards – picked up a Grammy Award earlier this week.
Speaking to BBC 6Music, Sir Paul revealed he is working with artists such as Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns, Paul Epworth and Giles Martin, son of the Beatles producer George on the record. “They’re cool people whose work I liked and of course, what’s happened is I like them all,” he said.
Later, McCartney spoke of his surprise at a 17th Grammy win. “It came as a big shock to me to know there were 17 to tell you the truth,” he continued. “I don’t keep count, I suppose that’s somewhat flash – people know my figures better than I do.”
“I don’t think a lot of the best musicians in the world got Grammys, it only goes to select few, and so to be one of those for the 17th time is phenomenal.”
