LOS ANGELES – Paul McCartney is inviting fans on a musical journey as he prepares to release his 17th solo album.
The former Beatle, who turned 76 on Monday, announced on social media on Wednesday that “Egypt Station” will be released on Sept. 7. The title comes from the name of one of McCartney’s paintings, and it will be McCartney’s first full album since “NEW” in 2013.
In a statement the singer said he liked the title “Egypt Station” because “it reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.”
McCartney posted the singles “I Don’t Know” and “Come On To Me.”
In a statement, McCartney says he thinks of the album “as a dream location that the music emanates from.”
“Egypt Station” was recorded in Los Angeles, London and Sussex, England.
