Surprise! Paul McCartney Announces YouTube Concert On Friday

Don’t let Paul McCartney’s age fool you! He might be 76 years old, but the music legend is no stranger to embracing technology—exhibit a) his 2 million followers Instagram account—, and now he’s a bout to further prove it.

The iconic musician will celebrate the release of his new solo album Egypt Station with a “secret concert” in New York City this Friday. Though the venue has not yet been revealed, the performance will be webcast live, for free, on McCartney’s YouTube channel. And yes—that means Paul’s gig will be available here, there, and everywhere (pun absolutely, 100%, totally intended).

The concert, which according to the former Beatle’s website is expected to begin at 8pm ET, will of course feature new-album tracks alongside classics from the Beatles, Wings, and his solo catalogues, as expected.

Egypt Station, inspired on one of his painting from 1988, is Paul McCartney’s 17th solo project and his first full album of all-new music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. According to Paul, true to the inspiration behind its title, the album’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe.

Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first son and then each song is like a different station,” McCartney said in a statement back in June. “So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”
