      Here it is! Following the announcement on Paul's website a few weeks back, we’re excited to share the first preview clip from Home (Radio Edit), our new single featuring Paul McCartney on Hofner bass. Produced in Malawi and UK during lockdown, Paul recorded the bass at his home studio during sessions for his #1 album McCartney III. He’s given us an incredible performance on that iconic instrument he’s been playing since 1963. The finished track was mastered by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios and this is the first preview clip from the official video, filmed in and around Senga Bay by Lake Malawi in Eastern Africa.

      *We need your help to get this track out there!* Please like and share the clip with your friends - we’re really proud of this single and our upcoming new album, and all proceeds from the Umoza Music Project go to the Malawian singers.

      It’s amazing to release this just as Paul turns 80. How is it that a guy who’s had a career like his is still surprising us? And playing killer bass ♥️

        The band have shared a short interview clip of the Malawian singers (who hadn’t heard of Paul or The Beatles when the project started) talking about the track and the impact of Paul playing bass. There’s a different section of the track, with a different bass riff, in the background.The vocal radio edit, and a full length instrumental at nearly 7 minutes, are being released this Friday on all streaming/download services.Youtube link:
