Paul McCartney To Do Standards

(Gibson) John Lennon used to chide his partner, Paul McCartney, at times for playing what Lennon called "granny music," but those barbs never dissuaded Macca from occasionally visiting the styles and sounds of previous generations. Now, McCartney is apparently set to revisit some of the standards that played over the radio airwaves during his youth with a new album of covers.

"It's my dad's style of music," he told Rolling Stone. "I've wanted to do that kind of thing forever, since the Beatle days. But then Rod [Stewart] went mad on it. I thought, 'I have to wait so it doesn't look like I'm trying to do a Rod.'"

As far as the selections, McCartney said, "They're just songs I admire, I'm trying to steer away from the obvious ones. It's get-home-from-work music. You put it on and get a glass of wine." more on this story
