Default Some info about "Bushie-Tushie"...

April 17, 2005 -- MACCA REPORT EXCLUSIVE!

Macca's Bushie-Tushie

According to a source, Paul's anti-landmine song, "Bushie-Tushie"(Jelly Jam) is not an attack on President Bush though it refers to Bush not signing the landmine treaty.

The song is not confrontational or negative. It is a song about making the world landmine free so children can have a safer place to play.

There is a childrens chorus and background vocals that are spoken and sung. World leaders are named and nations that have signed the landmine treaty.

There is a woman's voice that sings in a high falsetto:

Oh Bushie...put your tushie,
on the bottom line,
and JUST SAY NO, SAY NO,
to NO MORE LANDMINES...

Those titles are really weird!! hopefully it can be a 15-18 track album.... i have always disliked albums that don't have many songs....

Perhaps Paul is not aware of the alternate meaning of the above maybe?

Another politically charged song? I find that Paul's political songs always end up being uber cheesy...Remember "Looking For Changes" from "Off The Ground"? Good tune, crappy lyrics.

I just hope that this won't be a repeat of Driving Rain! C'mon Paul, give us something to write home to mother about!!!

I think that the landmines song could be cool if it were in the style of Nuclear War by Sun-Ra. Kids and children yell-singing about how stupid world governments are. We can only hope it will be somewhat as cool.

Regardless, I think that what I've heard about the album so far sounds promising. I mean, it sounds better than Driving Rain and maybe even possibly an actual *good* album--not just a *good McCartney* album.

Well, with the now official announcement that Paul's tour begins on September 16th...

... it's probably a good bet that his new album will come out a little before that, so that rumoured August release date seems plausible...

Neat... just three months after Ringo's !

And, just as I said here earlier, just three days before Paul's tour starts...

May 7, 2005 -- Rolling Stone

Sir Paul's Big Plans - McCartney to release solo disc, launch tour in September

Three years ago, when Sir Paul McCartney last went on the road, he earned $103.3 million--topping Pollstar's list of the year's biggest tours. Only Bruce Springsteen, with his $116 milliion-grossing "Rising" tour in 2003, has beaten the ex-Beatle since. But times have changed. The concert business fell into a malaise last summer, and even Madonna and Prince couldn't bail it out.

Can McCartney's fall arena tour of the U.S., which begins on September 16th, help reverse the trend? Some wonder if too many expensive superstar tours--McCartney charges up to $250 per ticket, the Rolling Stones are expected to be comparable and U2 are close--could spread fans' entertainment budgets too thin. "There's only so much money," says Dennis Arfa, agent for Metallica and others. "Those who get on sale later, they're going to be hurt by the money that's not available."

But Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live, which is promoting half the dates on McCartney's Lexus-sponsored tour, says that sixteen of the first seventeen dates sold out quickly. "You couldn't
have a hotter ticket," he says.

McCartney plans to release an album to coincide with the tour. He reportedly intended to bring a band into the studio, but instead, his new producer, longtime Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich, suggested he make it alone. So McCartney played most of the instruments, including fluegelhorn and drums, which he played sporadically in the Seventies while fronting Wings.

Nonetheless, since McCartney's February Super Bowl appearance, when he performed "Drive My Car," "Get Back," "Hey Jude" and "Live and Let Die," he's planning to continue playing more Beatles classics. "The interesting thing, now that I've decided it's OK to do Beatles songs, is looking at stuff that I've never done live," he says. "I don't just do a kind of very self-satisfied set for myself. I try and do stuff people are going to want to see."

Cool period to be a Beatles' fan, the last time that two ex-fabs released "new" albums in the same year was waaay back in... 1983 ! *

* By "new", I mean studio albums (excluding "cover albums'' like "Run Devil Run")...

1983
"Old wave" (Ringo)
"Pipes of peace" (Paul)

This is indeed something to anticipate.

I will admit that I am surprised Bruce Springsteen topped Paul monetarily tour-wise.
