Paul McCartney: New

"The unusual high-school assembly was part of Mr. McCartney’s promotional swing through New York for his album 'New,' due for release on Tuesday. ... Three songs from 'New,' which pairs Mr. McCartney with new producers, vigorously upheld the Beatles spirit. 'New' celebrated the hopefulness of new love with ebullient piano chords reminiscent of 'Penny Lane.' (Mr. McCartney dedicated it to [his wife Nancy] Shevell and the anniversary of their Oct. 9 wedding.) The guitar riffs of 'Save Us' arrived with an almost punky drive, even as the song headed for a vocal-harmony chorus. And 'Everybody Out There' was foot-stomping folk-rock that urged, 'Do some good before you say goodbye' (Jon Pareles, "Paul McCartney Makes Surprise Stop in Queens," New York Times, 10/9/13).
