Paul McCartney – Kisses on the Bottom: exclusive album stream

This is the album that Paul McCartney always wanted to make with the Beatles. It’s his 15th solo LP – his first for almost five years – and comprises 12 cover versions of songs he grew up listening to in Liverpool, such as Bye Bye Blackbird and It’s Only a Paper Moon, which perhaps his father would play on the piano.

Oh, plus two originals.

Listen out, as well, for guest contributions from Diana Krall, Stevie Wonder and Eric Clapton.

The album’s title, Kisses on the Bottom, comes from lead track I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter, originally a hit for Fats Waller in 1935.

Don’t write us a letter, simply tell us in the comments thread below what you make of the record, due on 6 February.
