Paul McCartney’s long-awaited new album, Driving Rain, is set for release on November 13, and the first single, “From A Lover To A Friend,” is due to arrive October 29. The album is the former Beatle’s first since 1997’s Flaming Pie. It was recorded in Los Angeles this summer with his new band and will feature McCartney’s son James on guitar on two of the album’s tracks.
The song “From A Lover To A Friend” is a ballad McCartney penned in tribute to his late wife Linda. The song will also be featured in the upcoming film Vanilla Sky, slated to hit theaters in November. The album also reportedly includes a song titled “Heather,” an homage to Heather Mills, McCartney’s fiancee.
Although the tracklisting for Driving Rain is not yet set, other songs slated for the album include: “Spinning On An Axis,” “Rinse The Raindrops,” “Driving Rain,” “Tiny Bubble,” “Loving Flame,” “Without You,” “About You,” “Back In The Sunshine Again,” “The Lonely Road,” and “Riding Into Jaipur.”
