This coming March, we’ll be celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder huge collaboration, “Ebony and Ivory.” So it’s only fitting that they have once again teamed up on McCartney’s forthcoming (mostly) covers album, Kisses On The Bottom. They share vocal duties on one of two original tracks on the record, “Only Our Hearts.” McCartney released the following statement on working with Wonder:
“Stevie came along to the studio in L.A. and he listened to the track for about ten minutes and he totally got it. He just went to the mic and within 20 minutes had nailed this dynamite solo. When you listen you just think, ‘How do you come up with that?’ But it’s just because he is a genius, that’s why’.”
Kisses On The Bottom drops Feb. 7. Peep the video for “Ebony and Ivory” below.
