“bring back fun memories”
In a statement, Paul McCartney revealed that he hopes this box set will “bring back fun memories”.
“I hope the songs in this boxset bring back fun memories for you too”, he said. “They do for me, and there will be more to come…”.
In a sneak preview of the box set, McCartney also released the tracks ‘Too Many People’ and ‘Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey’.
Earlier this week, Julian Lennon who is the son of Paul McCartney’s former Beatle bandmate and friend John Lennon, claimed that the track ‘Hey Jude’ evokes a lot of good and bad memories for him.
The track was written by McCartney for Julian, following the break up of his parents John and Cynthia’s marriage in 1968.
While he is thankful of McCartney’s support at the time, Julian stated that the track is a “dark reminder of what actually did happen”.
“She was the be all and end all of life for me, and it was about looking after her, still is about making her proud”, Julian added of his mother. More on this from Nova here.
