        That ain't no rumor!

          Similar speculation -- oh hell, rumors -- is afoot on Steve Hoffman's board.

            Yup.  I started it a couple weeks ago, but got (multiple) confirmations today!  "Let the party begin" as a wise man once said!

            Having seen your comments here and there, I don't think you'll be thrilled with the concept, tho!

                Note the other thread that's at the top of the list, Nancy. I think it'll make most fans happy, but I noted Bruce M's comment on the first page when I was bumping it, and realized not everyone will necessarily be overjoyed...

                  So will be McCartney 3 (or III?) What does that necessarily mean? Obviously he plays all the instruments, but what else?

                    Just that, really!  I got tipped off to this a couple weeks ago and posted on the Hoffman board (my usual spot), but didn't state any details - just that I'd heard a new album was done.  I wanted someone else to confirm it either privately or publicly before I made a potential fool of myself.

                    But within the space of an hour this morning I got two separate confirmations. :) 

                    So I wanted to make a trip here to share the news.

                      Oh hot damn !!! That's something MAJOR to look forward to with feverish anticipation ! Which is greatly needed, in these times--

                      If it's true...

                        If it is like "McCartney II" I will be disappointed, absolutely hated it. If it is like "McCartney", then I might possibly like it -lol. If it is something total different from those two, I will probably be very happy.

                          Great to hear about the additional confirmations!

                            Yay!! So looking forward to new McCartney material.  I thought I had seen a picture of him with Nuno and it looked like they were playing a song  together, I'm then imagining there will be other musicians as well from that picture. I've always wished he would play with Chris Martin too!

                              Nope.  Let's just say Paul's recording methods were a model of "social distancing" for this project!

                                 This is going to be interesting... can't wait!  Any ideas on a title or any song info?

                                  No song info, but take a look at the other topic near the top of the board right now.  Ought to tell you everything you need to know!

                                    Although admittedly it didn't do Band on The Run any harm sales wise, releasing a new album in December is pretty dumb. It will just get swallowed up by the record companies pushing their festive compilation 'best of' albums.

                                    While there is no reason not to believe that a new album isn't due for release (Paul certainly had the time to put one together during the lock down period), personally I'm going to wait for an official announcement before getting too excited. 

                                      ^ Of course. The time to get excited is AFTER an official announcement but we can all speculate until then. Looks like Eric, you have ben chosen to be the spokesperson for this one. lol

                                        I don't accept that role!  :)

                                        I got a tip that seemed unbelievable to me but, after vetting it to the best of my abilities, I was convinced. I then published just PART of what I'd been told, to see if anyone could confirm it.  It took a couple weeks, but yesterday two separate Hoffman-ites both managed to tell me exactly what I'd been told, and at that point it seems fair to tell all, rather than sit on it.

                                        50 years after 1, and 40 years after 2, I believe  it's time to count to 3!

                                          No offense, but what are your sources, eric from boise, and how were you told ? Are your sources impeccable ? how is it that you found out? I tried to get on Hoffman's music forum, but for some reason was unable to access it this time, although I have, in the past. I tried several times this time. Will keep on trying. 

                                          Thanks for info. 

                                          I don't see why Yankeefan "hated" McCartney 2; although of course music taste is subjective, mainly. Not all its songs are "weird" or unusual.

                                            I wrote a lengthy post over there explaining everything; I'll just link it here:

                                            Tried to anticipate all the questions I'd get and answer them best as I could.
