Paul McCartney Discusses New Album's Title
When Paul McCartney revealed his forthcoming solo album's title was Kisses On The Bottom, outlets like NME called the title one of the "50 worst album titles in history," along with REO Speedwagon's You Can Tune a Piano But You Can't Tuna Fish and Charlotte Church's Tissues and Issues.
Set for release on February 6, McCartney explained the title is taken from the lyrics in Fats Waller's 1935 hit, "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Better," which McCartney covers on the album.
The song's lyrics go:
"I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter and make believe it came from you/I'm gonna write words oh so sweet/They're gonna knock me off of my feet/A lot of kisses on the bottom/I'll be glad I got 'em."
The album was recorded with producer Tommy LiPuma, Diana Krall, and features appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder. The album comprises of songs McCartney listened to as a child along with two new songs, "My Valentine" and "Only Our Hearts."
The album's full tracklist is below:
"I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself A Letter"
