Mccartney Releases Classical Album
Sir Paul McCartney is releasing an album of choral and orchestral works in English and Latin in what will be his most complex musical offering to date. The 64-year-old former BEATLE was commissioned by Oxford University's Magdalen College to produce the work, entitled ECCA COE MEUM (BEHOLD MY HEART). The Yellow Submarine hitmaker says, "Eventually I made it all come together through correcting some misapprehensions. If it had been a Beatles song I would have known how to do it. But this was a completely different ball game." The innovative album is set for release later this year (06).
