According to the latest issue of Good Day Sunshine, Paul McCartney and Jeff Lynne are getting along together very well.
Throughout November 1995, Paul and Jeff have been recording 3 new songs (Paul has confirmed this in a radio interview). Because of Linda's illness, they only continued recordings in mid February 1996 in order to finish the 3 songs, and to record further 3 songs.
One of the 6 new recordings is "The Song We Were Singing" which is reported to be a lovely tribute to John. Another one is "Flaming Pie" and is said to have "surrealistic tongue-in-cheek lyrics".
Good Day Sunshine magazine further cites their source saying "They sound great. It will blow people away. It will have the kind of impact that Cloud Nine had for George."
GDS also reports that only Lynne and McCartney are featured on the recordings. Paul's band was not involved.
Good Day Sunshine just told me that Jeff and Paul have been recording two more songs at Paul's studio in Sussex. (September and early October 1996).
This makes a total of 8 new songs (co-)produced by Jeff Lynne. Considering that Paul has also recorded with George Martin and other producers over the last several years, it might easily happen that not all of these songs will be released on his next album - this had happened with multiple recordings in the past: they ended up unreleased.
