Paul McCartney is teaming up with poet Paul Muldoon for a new podcast co-produced by Pushkin Industries and iHeartPodcasts, out September 20.
“McCartney: A Life in Lyrics” is a combination master class, memoir, and improvised journey with the icon, where each episode focuses on one song from his iconic catalog – spanning early Beatles through his solo work.
The podcast features conversations between McCartney and Muldoon where they dissect the people, experiences, and art that inspired the former’s songwriting.
“When we listened back to the tapes, we realized there was something very special happening in these conversations,” Muldoon explains in the prologue episode, out now. “It was McCartney unfiltered.”
Season 1 features 12 episodes that include timeless favorites like “Eleanor Rigby,” “Back in the USSR,” “Let It Be,” “When Winter Comes,” “Penny Lane,” “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey,” “Here Today,” “Live and Let Die,” “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Jenny Wren,” “Too Many People,” and “Helter Skelter.”
New episodes of “McCartney: A Life in Lyrics” will be released weekly starting September 20 on iHeartRadio, Apple, Spotify, and wherever podcasts are available.
Pushkin+ subscribers will be able to binge the entire season on the very first day. “McCartney: A Life in Lyrics” will be distributed by iHeartPodcasts.
