During a MSN cyberchat today, Sir Paul told fans that he has started to work on a new studio album with his touring band of guitarists Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, keyboardist Paul "Wix" Wickens and drummer Abe Laboriel Jr. But it might take a while with the baby on the way:
"I'm taking it really easy and not in any hurry to get it finished -- particularly with our new arrival on the way. So, I don't expect to finish the album until next year some time which will give me plenty of time to write material because I want to make a great album that we'll be able to take on the road and play for all the lovely fans who supported us last time out."
Commenting about his concert special Paul McCartney in Red Square, Sir Paul said:
"I would love to take up some of the offers we've already had to make a DVD out of the show. This will also mean that we can take some time to put together all of the exciting extras you can get on a DVD. So I would estimate sometime next year."
Sir Paul is also working on a book chronicling his recent world tours. He said the book will include "our memories, on stage, on the road, back stage, and off road. Not only for fans, but for those of us who were lucky enough to be on the tour, it will be a great reminder of the wonderful time we had."
Sir Paul is scheduled to will perform in California Tuesday, September 23, at the third annual Adopt a Minefield benefit concert being held at the Beverly Hills Hilton. His old friend, James Taylor, is also scheduled to perform with him that evening.
