Our friends at NME
shared the scoop that earlier this summer Paul McCartney
was in New York cutting tracks with Mark Ronson who produced Rufus Wainwright's new album but might be best known for shaping the sound of Amy Winehouse's classic Back to Black
which featured a heap of Epiphone basses and guitars.
That's good news for Macca fans who have been clamoring for an album that puts Paul's serious bass chops front and center. And since bandmate Brian Ray is frequently on stage with an Epiphone Jack Casady
, this would be a good time for Sir Paul to bring one in the studio.
