Macca’s Social Media Posts: New Album Coming Up?

The discharge of his lengthy awaited new album appears to be close to, now that Paul McCartney has posted a number of cryptic messages on social media:. The expectation is that inside just a few days a brand new single will see the sunshine of day and that additionally the title of the brand new album shall be introduced.



It began final Saturday, June 9, when McCartney’s accounts on Twitter, Fb and Instagram went ‘white’; actually, as a result of the profile photograph and the background picture had been changed by a white . Earlier that day, Paul gave a shock efficiency in Liverpool, the place he additionally performed a brand new track: “Come On To You”. All of that is after all no coincidence. The message is obvious, there’s something particular developing.



The next day, Sunday, a primary trace follows: A considerably infantile drawing of what I interpret as a pyramid with the setting solar. It jogs my memory of the social media marketing campaign 5 years in the past, with the discharge of the earlier album NEW. Again then, for just a few days, McCartney posted simply single phrases on his twitter account, akin to ‘fortress’, ‘born’ and ‘york’. All phrases the place the phrase ‘New’ could be put in entrance. McCartney additionally posted a white image with black horizontal and vertical stripes, which later turned out to be a stylistic adaptation of the album cowl. May this be one thing comparable too, that the drawing is a simplified illustration of the album cowl, identical to then?


The pyramid can simply as nicely be a railway line by means of a tunnel. On social media, some see within the rail tracks a reference to tracks on an album. Others see seven ranges within the drawing, may that be an album title, Seven Ranges? Or a rollercoaster, or a gateway to a different galaxy, which jogs my memory of the so-called leaked faux title, final 12 months: The Universe And Past. That actually received’t be the title! Others see within the drawing ‘the sunshine on the finish of the tunnel’, a sarcastic reference to the lengthy await the album.



I simply don’t have a clue, so I’ll have to attend for attainable new hints to come back. They usually do present up, on Monday and Tuesday, two black and white pictures. Placing about them is that each are taken by what seems like a sort of opening. As in case you secretly peek by means of one thing. That, after all, is not any coincidence and is maybe one other reference to a title.
The primary image reveals a set of microphones, with a piano within the background and an extended row of headphones. It’s clearly a recording studio. So far as I’m involved that is undoubtful a touch that the discharge of a brand new album shall be introduced quickly. However I don’t see a brand new clue to an album title. 

The second black-and-white photograph doesn’t make any sense to me. This time Pauls Gibson is on the image, with a bunch of flight instances. That appears to point extra on a brand new tour … not a brand new launch? I’m beginning to doubt, however however, a brand new tour has by no means been introduced in such a approach. So the hope for the brand new album stays.

After which in the present day, Wednesday, the newest trace. Once more a black and white photograph and once more made as if you’re peeking alongside. This time McCartney himself is on the image, seen on the again, sitting behind a piano. I can’t make something out of it. Maybe extra necessary in the present day are the rumors that subsequent Friday the brand new single, or maybe even your complete album, shall be launched. There’s lots to take a position about, little remains to be sure. Perhaps one or two clues will comply with subsequent days, nevertheless it appears, and I hope, that we will hearken to some new McCartney music this weekend!
