Paul McCartney's upcoming album travels back in the singer's past memory that gives meaning to it's title, "Memory Almost Full".
Claiming can't describe the new record in a sentence, Paul McCartney recalled the days from being a kid where all the emotion and vibe become the main theme of the 13 tracks. Titling the album "Memory Almost Full", McCartney dotted this one as a very personal record.
The 64 years old singer has unveiled the track list of the record which includes a five songs-medley. He referred this medley as "purposely retrospective" and said, "I thought this might be because I'm at this point in my life, but then I think about the times I was writing with John (Lennon) and a lot of that was also looking back. It's like me with 'Penny Lane' and 'Eleanor Rigby' -- I'm still up to the same tricks!"
"Memory Almost Full" which is an anagram of "For My Soulmate LLM" will hit the stores June 5 via Hear Music. This record marks the first work under the new label and also the first that will be available digitally. A video for first single "Dance Tonight" has been shot by director Michel Gondry who involved actress Natalie Portman and "The Office" actor Mackenzie Crook in the plot. As an early taste meanwhile, "Ever Present Past" debuted on U.S. radio on April 20, 2007.
