St. Vincent has opened up about her experience working with Paul McCartney, which the singer-songwriter declared as “the best moment of my life”.
Paul McCartney completed a trilogy last year, releasing his McCartney III album to critical acclaimed. He finished the journey he’d started 50 years prior with his first effort McCartney. On April 16th, he’s sharing McCartney III Imagined, which features new versions of all the tracks with other acclaimed artists’ assistance. St. Vincent remixed the song, ‘Women and Wives’, Damon Albarn taking on ‘Long Tailed Winter Bird’ and Phoebe Bridgers featuring a new version of ‘Seize The Day’.
“After it was all done and everything, Paul called me to thank me and tell me that he liked it!” St. Vincent recalled in a recent interview with NME. “It was the best moment of my life… maybe? I mean, I don’t… I don’t know where to put that.
“One thing that occurred to me was, think about how many hours of enjoyment in the world have happened as a result of Paul McCartney’s music. Lifetimes and lifetimes of hours that people have spent listening to his work.”
The singer added: “At the end of the conversation, he said, ‘It’s a great thing that we get to do, this music thing, right?'” she added. “I was like, ‘Yes Paul – yes it is.'”
Meanwhile, St. Vincent is gearing up to share her forthcoming sixth-studio album Daddy’s Home, which arrives on May 14th. Annie Clark announced the record last month with the glitzy comeback single, ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’. Last week, she shared ‘The Melting Of The Sun’, an old school unapologetically pop-driven single that sees St. Vincent pay homage to Joni Mitchell and Marilyn Monroe.
