Acoustic Tracks “Yours” and “Friends” Are Out Now
“Yours”, an introspective pop tune with verses that address several stages of McCartney’s life, including being “the face in every bedroom on a poster” in his mop-topped “Beautiful Soul” days.” – Billboard
“Friends” is the beach-y and upbeat answer to those missing their closest friends under lockdowns around the world. Along with a catchy and distorted dance break and a chorus of chanting voices, the track ends up feeling like the late nights of festivals past. – Paper Mag
