Paul McCartney to stream 'Kisses On The Bottom' live set on Thursday (February 9)
Singer will perform tracks from his new LP in the studio where he recorded them
The former Beatles man releases the album, which is largely comprised of cover versions, into shops on Monday (February 6) and will celebrate by performing tracks live at Capitol Studios, where the album was recorded, on Thursday (February 9). The whole set will be live streamed over iTunes.
The album is made up of songs McCartney listened to as a child as well as two new songs, 'My Valentine' and 'Only Our Hearts'.
It has been recorded with producer Tommy LiPuma, Diana Krall and her band and it also features appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.
McCartney revealed over the weekend that his love of mischief led him to call the album 'Kisses On The Bottom' and that he believed a little controversy is "good for the soul".
He said: "I like mischief. It's good for the soul, it's always a good idea - if only because people think it's a bad idea."
