Paul McCartney: ‘Stevie Wonder is a genius’

The pair worked together on new McCartney composition 'Only Our Hearts'

Paul McCartney has spoken about working with Stevie Wonder on his new album ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, 30 years after the pair collaborated on the Number One song ‘Ebony and Ivory’.

The pair join forces once again on new track, ‘Only Our Hearts’, which is one of only two new McCartney songs on the record. Of working with Wonder at Los Angeles’ Capitol Studio, McCartney said:

Stevie came along to the studio in LA 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.

Paul McCartney‘s new album, ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, is out on February 6. Eric Clapton features on the album’s other new song ‘My Valentine’.


‘Kisses On The Bottom’ is a collection of standards McCartney grew up listening to in his childhood as well as the two new McCartney compositions mentioned above. The album was produced by Grammy Award-winning Tommy LiPuma and also features Diana Krall and her band.
