Paul McCartney Made a Christmas Album and You’ll Never Hear It
Paul McCartney recently revealed he's recorded a ‘secret’ Christmas album, but the chances of fans ever hearing it are slim to none.
The former Beatle has a staple for the holiday season with his 1979 hit "Wonderful Christmastime", but apparently that isn't where the yuletide cheer stopped. He told BBC Radio 4's World at One that he actually went into the studio years ago and recorded a Christmas album. “Years ago, I thought, ‘There's not very good Christmas records,’ so I actually went into my studio over a couple of years and I made one", McCartney said.
So why haven't the fans had a chance to hear the holiday set? Seems McCartney made it for only his family to enjoy. “It gets brought out each year, I’ve just got a little demo of it, but the kids like it. It’s kind of traditional — it's something they've heard through the years, and now it's the grandkids getting indoctrinated with my carols record.”
Although you won't be hearing McCartney's holiday tunes anytime soon, you will be able to catch some of his work on Netflix. It was announced that McCartney's 2005 children's book, "High in the Clouds", will be made into animated film. The former Beatle will even score the movie with some new original songs.
This September, he published an a illustrated book titles "Hey Gratitude", and he will be hitting the road again next spring on tour. It was also recently confirmed that Sir Paul will headline next summers Glastonbury Festival.
