Paul McCartney was asked during a recent website Q&A if he’d consider remaking any of his past albums, which would include The Beatles and Wings, especially with his ‘Reimagined’ album featuring artists reworking his recent solo songs coming out. Paul McCartney Called Out The Beatles ‘Ripoffs.’
PaulMcCartney.com: McCartney III Imagined is such an exciting concept, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear all the different tracks on the album. Would you ever consider getting another one of your albums reimagined? If so which one?
Paul: I think it’s a really interesting idea. Usually when you’re making music, you don’t dream up the idea that someone else will cover your stuff – you just wait to see if it happens. That’s the traditional way of things being re-imagined. But it is kinda nice when you actually put it together as a project, and say to people, ‘Would you like to do this?’ Particularly when they’ve got a lot of time on their hands, when we’re all in lockdown and no one’s touring… I think it is a good idea. And which other album might I do, given the chance? RAM is the one that comes to mind.
PMC.com: We’ve got the 50th anniversary of RAM coming up this year, maybe there’ll be some organic ones coming through.
Paul: Now that would be an idea.
