Favorite Albums of 2013 – #17: Paul McCartney

17. Paul McCartney – NEW

Whereas Bowie looked back, McCartney turned toward the now. Gathering up three young producers including Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse), Paul Epworth (Adele) and Giles Martin (son of Beatles’ producer George and the man who meshed-up Beatles music for LOVE), McCartney has brought together some hip talent to produce some of his best pop songs in decades. NEW is full of vibrant, bright numbers even if his voice — like Bowie’s — is beginning to sound like an old man’s. Simply, it’s good musical fun.

Favorite songs: “On My Way to Work” | “New” | “Everybody Out There”

The entire list… so far.
