Paul McCartney's new studio album, Driving Rain, will be released November 13th on Capitol Records. Recorded in Los Angeles this summer with his new band, the former Beatle's first album of new material since 1997's Flaming Pie will feature fifteen of the eighteen tracks already laid to tape. McCartney's son James plays guitar on two songs.
"From a Lover to a Friend," the album's first single, is due out October 29th. The ballad, a tribute to McCartney's late wife Linda, will also be featured in the upcoming Cameron Crowe film, Vanilla Sky, which hits theaters in November. Driving Rain also features the song "Heather," an homage to fiancée Heather Mills.
Although the track listing is not set, other titles slated for the record include "Spinning on an Axis," "Rinse the Raindrops," "Driving Rain," "Tiny Bubble," "Loving Flame," "Without You," "About You," "Back in the Sunshine Again," "The Lonely Road" and an Indian-flavored instrumental, "Riding Into Jaipur."
