Paul McCartney reveals real reason why he RARELY listens to The Beatles anymore

Friday, January 03, 2020

Alongside John Lennon, Paul McCartney wrote some of the most memorable songs of the modern world. However, The Beatles legend has revealed why he doesn’t really listen to his hit tunes anymore. Promoting his new book Hey Grandude! on The Penguin Podcast, the 77-year-old said: “I don’t listen to a lot of Beatles music, I don’t listen to a lot of my own music.”

McCartney continued: “You’re often onto the next thing and I’m always there doing something because I enjoy working.

“But what is nice is when we remaster or when there’s a project particularly The Beatles from sixty years ago or it’s an anniversary – it’s fifty years, it’s sixty years.

“I have to listen to it to approve it and to say the remaster is a great job.

“So we play the remastered sound alongside the old sound and you know, sometimes the old sounds better.”
