Paul McCartney in 10 Solo Albums

by Smaël Bouaici

With 60 gold records, Paul McCartney is one of the most gifted songwriters in the history of pop music. Now that he’s approaching his 80th birthday (after 60 years of writing hit after hit), Qobuz looks back on his post-Beatles years, exploring his huge discography and highlighting the top 10 essential albums.

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard' (2005)
The turn of the new millenium didn’t dampen McCartney’s appetite for getting out of his comfort zone. In 2003, following the advice of George Martin and the flop of his previous album Driving Rain, he decided to take a risk and recreate his image by embarking on a new project produced by Nigel GodrichRadiohead’s studio guru. After initial sessions with a band, Godrich, who wasn’t sure the ex-Beatle was “ready to get his hands dirty”, decided that it would be better to have just the two of them in the studio. What followed were 18 months of scattered recording sessions between London and Los Angeles, during which Godrich didn’t hesitate to speak his mind to the legendary singer-songwriter. “I’d bring in songs and Nigel would just say: ‘I don’t like it’. When I asked him why, he’d say: ‘look, it’s a bit cheesy, you’ve done much better than this before.’ And that was cool, he wasn’t in yes man mode, which would have been easy given my status.” The result is a more downtempo, contemplative record with no frills attached. It reveals a pared-down and tender McCartney and is possibly one of the best albums of his career.

Egypt Station (2018)
McCartney’s still got it, and he proved this in 2018 with Egypt Station, which no one expected to top the US Billboard 200 in its first week. It was the Englishman’s first number one since Tug of War in 1982 and was an unanticipated success (perhaps due to the Pure McCartney anthology released two years earlier, which reminded the world of his song writing talent). Egypt Station, which takes its name from a dyptych that the singer painted in the 80s, was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex with Greg Kurstin, known for his work with AdeleBeck and the Foo Fighters. McCartney does what he does best, but with a modern edge. Even though his voice has aged, he’s still perfectly assimilated to modern pop, as evidenced by tracks like 'Fuh You'. He offers beautiful moments in 'Hand in Hand', catchy melodies in the single 'Come On to Me' and he’s as expressive on the keyboard as he’s always been ('Do It Now'). This classic album is a fan favourite.

McCartney III (2020)
Paul McCartney’s latest album is pure coincidence. Locked down in Sussex, he decided to relaunch the series he began in 1969-70 when The Beatles split up (and continued in 1979-80 when Wings split up). Shut away in his farmhouse, the ex-Beatle rediscovered the pleasure of letting his artistic flair run free in his studio. When he came across 'When Winter Comes', a track recorded in 1992 with George Martin, he decided to add a verse to it. “I was making music for myself […] so I did things I wanted to do”, he explains. As on the first two albums, McCartney is solo from start to finish and plays all the instruments himself. There’s mostly acoustic guitar and piano, though drums, bass, harmonica and keyboard also feature (and his favourite guitarist Rusty Anderson brings some electricity to the huge rock track 'Slidin’'). Over time, he accumulated enough material to make an album and demonstrated through intimate folk ballads, such as 'Pretty Boys' and 'Women And Wives', that no matter the circumstances, he's always been an exceptional songwriter.
