Sir Paul has told reporters that he hopes his new album will be a commercial success. Otherwise, he will consider himself a failure because to him it will mean that people no longer want to listen to his music. Sir Paul considers financial success a symbol of achievement:
"I don't know anyone who makes records who doesn't want them to sell. Sell has become a bit of a dirty word. Okay, forget the money, you want people to have them. Or else you wouldn't do music, you'd just be a busker. But you make records because you want people in Edinburgh, Cleveland, Melbourne to have it. You want to communicate to them how you're feeling. But yeah, I think there was a commercial consideration. I wanted it to do well. I always do."
