Paul McCartney was recently asked on his website PaulMcCartney.com if he would ever consider having another of his albums “re-imagined.”1971’s album Ram came to his mind.
McCartney says, "I think it’s a really interesting idea. Usually when you’re making music, you don’t dream up the idea that someone else will cover your stuff - you just wait to see if it happens. That’s the traditional way of things being re-imagined. But it is kinda nice when you actually put it together as a project, and say to people, ‘Would you like to do this?’ Particularly when they’ve got a lot of time on their hands, when we’re all in lockdown and no one’s touring... I think it is a good idea. And, which other album might I do, given the chance? Ram is the one that comes to mind."
Sir Paul was also asked if he’s considered writing songs for other artists again. He replied, "The truth is that I have been doing that with two big projects that I have on: with the animation feature film High in the Clouds, which is in production, and with the musical It’s a Wonderful Life.”
You’ll recall McCartney did write songs in the 60’s for artists like Mary Hopkin, Billy J. Kramer as well as Peter and Gordon.
McCartney III Imagined, featuring several contemporary artists singing his songs will be out on April 16th in a digital release.
