Paul McCartney To Perform ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ Live on iTunes
Tuesday (Feb. 7) will see the release of Paul McCartney’s new album, ‘Kisses On The Bottom,’ and to celebrate, the Beatles legend and his band will be performing live at Hollywood, California’s Capitol Studios, where the disc was recorded. The entire performance will be streamed live via Tunes on Thursday.
The album’s title, a bit of a nudge nudge wink wink, actually takes its name from a line in the Fats Waller song, ‘I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.’ Regarding the title, Paul recently explained, “I like mischief. It’s good for the soul, it’s always a good idea — if only because people think it’s a bad idea.”
‘Kisses’ is primarily an album of boyhood favorites of Sir Paul — Great American Songbook classics from the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s — and Paul has long wanted to make an album featuring these kind of songs. “I always grew up lovin ’em and associating those songs with family and good times,” he told The Advertiser, “and the other thing is, when I got into songwriting I realized how well structured these songs were and I think I took a lot of my lessons from them.”
