The Rain Exploded With a Mighty Crash

It's official. The first release from Hear Music, Starbucks' record label, will be a new album from Paul McCartney, due early summer.

“For me the great thing is the commitment and the passion and the love of music, which as an artist is good to see,” said McCartney. “It’s a new world now and people are thinking of new ways to reach the people and for me that’s always been my aim.”
For a huge fan like myself, it's more important that Paul's releasing new music so soon.
“It is such a privilege to be able to present this amazing new album to the world,” said Glen Barros, president and CEO of the Concord Music Group. “I believe that McCartney fans, like myself, will find that this album connects them to everything that they’ve always loved about Paul, yet also delivers a new personal dimension that shows his continued evolution as an artist. It is a truly profound recording.”
Profound? Good thing they're downplaying expectations. Nonetheless, awesome.


UPDATE: Billboard reports an early June release.
