That was recorded during lockdown.

Paul McCartney is to release a new album made entirely alone during lockdown. McCartney III, comes out on 11 December and will become the third in a loose trilogy of releases for which he has isolated himself from collaborators, after McCartney in 1970 and McCartney II in 1980. Recorded at the musician’s home in Sussex, the album’s songs were built from live takes of McCartney singing over guitar or piano accompaniments, and were overdubbed later with his bass guitar and drum parts.
