The new album, which was recorded with Diana Krall and her band, features a couple of McCartney originals plus songs the former Beatle listened to when he was merely a pre-Beatle, such as “It’s Only A Paper Moon” and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive.”
McCartney also covers “Bye Bye Blackbird,” the 1926 tune written by Ray Henderson and Mort Dixon. That selection alone should tease fans as to whether McCartney will perform the song along with his own “Blackbird” while on tour.
The live stream featuring McCartney performing songs from Kisses On The Bottom will originate from Hollywood’s Capitol Studios where much of the album was recorded. Showtime is 10 p.m. EST via iTunes. Click here for more information.
