Paul McCartney Wants to Work With Paul Epworth on New Album
In the music industry, some names you should know but don’t, and one of those is Paul Epworth. Considered one of the hottest producers, Epworth was behind Adele’s 21 and, for that release, won Grammys for Producer, Album, Song, and Record of the Year. More recently, the theme for Skyfall, also featuring Adele, was his production. Aside from these distinctions, he has additionally worked with a diverse group of artists, including Florence + The Machine, Bloc Party, and Cee-Lo Green. Now Paul McCartney, eying his 16th solo album, wants to work with Epworth.
Should Epworth decide to work with the former Beatle, he wouldn’t be the only producer tied to the release. Right now, Ethan Johns and Mark Ronson have been rumored to be attached. A source told the Sunday Mirror that McCartney is taking a new approach with the release, explaining: "Paul respects Mark's knowledge and is wanting to produce a classic album with a young hip edge. And obviously Mark is over the moon to be working with a Beatle."
Could adding one of the most sought-after producers of the moment be part of this plan?
McCartney’s last release was Kisses on the Bottom, an album of romantic ballads, most traditional, that came out earlier in 2012. His in-the-works release would be his first of original material since 2007.
