Riff: Paul McCartney – “New”

Sep 5, 2013

from New lyrics by Paul McCartney

Teaming up with 60s pop revivalist Mark Ronson, McCartney inevitably delivers his most Beatles-like song in years with a sprightly mix of harpsichords, horns and harmonies straight out of a barbershop quartet on a wide-eyed and ‘two thumbs up’ declaration of love for his third wife; [LISTEN].
