Paul McCartney to release new dance album as The Fireman

New release also quashes rumours McCartney was attacking EMI

Paul McCartney is to release a new album this November under his dance music alter-ego The Fireman.

‘Electronic Arguments’ is released on November 17. The album has 13 tracks (all written by McCartney), and is the first album by The Fireman to feature vocals.

The release seemingly extinguishes recent rumours suggesting McCartney had launched an attack on his former record label EMI.

Promotional sleeves of the album showing what looked like the letters ‘E’, ‘M’ and ‘I’ were distributed last week (September 22), leading some commentators to believe McCartney was using the sleeve to make a comment about the label.

However, as predicted by NME.COM, the release of ‘Electronic Arguments’ indicates that the word actually being spelt out is actually E, M and part of the A from ‘Fireman’.

McCartney, alongside Killing Joke member and The Verve producer Youth, has been making music under the name The Fireman sporadically since 1993. The duo’s last official album was 1998’s ‘Rushes’.

The full tracklisting for ‘Electronic Arguments’ is:

‘Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight’

‘Two Magpies’

‘Sing The Changes’

‘Travelling Light’


‘Light From Your Lighthouse’

‘Sun Is Shining’

‘Dance ‘Til We’re High’

‘Lifelong Passion’

‘Is This Love?’

‘Lovers In A Dream’

‘Universal Here, Everlasting Now’

‘Don’t Stop Running’

The album was recorded in 13 days over a period of nearly a year, with each individual track being written and recorded in the space of just one day.

‘Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight’ is set to be premiered tonight (September 29) on Zane Lowe‘s BBC Radio 1 show.
