Paul McCartney 'Chaos And Creation In The Backyard' LP
Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard, Paul McCartney's 20th studio recording since The Beatles, marks an end to a nearly four-year hiatus since his last studio recording, 2001's platinum certified Driving Rain. The 13-track album was co-produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Travis and Beck) and McCartney, and was recorded in London and Los Angeles over the course of two years. Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard is a return to the basics for McCartney. The album successfully fuses his undeniable song writing talents with his unparalleled musicianship. In fact, McCartney is credited with playing the majority of the instruments on the album, which is somewhat reminiscent of McCartney when he was credited with playing all of the instruments. They include the drums, guitar, bass, keyboards, as well as many of the less traditional instruments such as block flute, harmonium and flugelhorn. Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard is a mix of up-tempo piano driven McCartney instant classics such as the new single Fine Line and Promise To You Girl and more introspective darker tracks such as At The Mercy, Too Much Rain and Riding To Vanity Fair. One of the many highlights is a track entitled, Jenny Wren, which Paul describes as "daughter of Blackbird", as well as Follow Me, which McCartney debuted at The Glastonbury Festival, while on his 04 Summer European Tour.
